A symposium on Coastal Geodesy sponsored by the German Union of Geodesy and Geophysics, IAG Special Study Group 2.22, and the IAPSO Advisory Committee on Tides and Mean Sea Level will be held in Munich, Germany, July 20–24, 1970. The primary purpose of this symposium is to assemble oceanographers, geodesists, and other scientists who are interested in the following topics: Sea level observations (instrumental questions, inherent faults, accuracy, documentation of installations, datums, and geodetic controls); Mean sea level calculation (analytical and theoretical studies, tidal filters, long-period tides, long-term perturbations of meteorological origin and chemical variation, regional steric slopes, wave set-up and similar phenomena); Possible use of artificial satellites in Coastal Geodesy; Geodetic problems (connection of tide gages to level network); Comparison of mean sea level heights and determination of secular changes; Geophysical aspects (recent crustal movements, crustal loading and oceanic attraction, and seismic changes); and a business meeting concerning the organizational basis of future work, both national and international.
