We propose to make a point on our OSTST Jason proposal on the implementation of a "high standard tide gauge network for scientific studies". This proposal aimed to bring together a certain number of tide gauges distributed on different part of the global ocean in order to build a coherent sea level network. From a technical point of view the aim was to build a network of reference for scientific studies. This network exist, it is at the moment constituted of a set of tide gauges located on Islands in Atlantic, Indian, Pacific, Austral ocean and Mediterranean sea. All these sites are administrated by different persons for different scientific purposes. We have proposed to upgrade these sites in order to fulfil our scientific objectives and to maintain this network on a long term base. This poster summarizes the main technical and scientific advances of the OSTST proposal.
