Data up to 1964 supplied by the Australian Ocean Data Centre N.S.W data is based on High and Low waters.

Revised data for 1964 onwards recieved from the National Tidal Centre, Bureau of Meteorology, South Australia

data previously supplied by C.S.I.R.O Tasmania

A value of MTL-MSL=-3 mm has been derived using the GESLA2 (high-frequency tide gauge) dataset using harmonic constituents. As the correction is only applied to RLR data and the data from 1962-1963 is metric, it is not used in the data set. Should this period become metric in future, however, it would be used.
