IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Characterization of sea level anomalies spatial and temporal analysis in the singapore region
Author : R. Rao , H. van den Boogaard , H. Gerritsen , V. Babovic, A. Mynett
Non-tidal water levels (or Sea Level Anomalies; SLAs) and associated residual currents are common to many marine systems. Understanding of these anomalies in terms of their spatial and temporal scales, distribution, mutual dependencies, etc., is important for real time water level and flow forecasting systems. In this paper SLAs in the Singapore region are analyzed and characterized, starting from 10 years of hourly observed water level data of 17 locations. SLA time series were extracted by removing a 67 component tidal signal. Basic statistical analyses are carried out to establish the magnitude and variability of SLAs in the region. SLA profiles of different locations are compared to establish spatial correlations. Seasonal variations and some pronounced SLA events are analyzed.
