=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 02-NOV-93 :
A discussion of Nain data 1964-72 including possible datum shift February 1967 is in Thompson et al., JGR 91(C12),14261-14268, 1986
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 23-MAR-94 :
Data up to 1988 revised, March 1994
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 15-JUL-94 :
Nain 970/134 RLR(1972) is 14.2m below BM YARD
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 24-SEP-97 :
1963-88 gauge type=float/stilling well 1989-94 gauge= other pressure type
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 19-Aug-2010 :
There is a gap in the dataset from 1988-2002. However, the RLR factor remains unchanged.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 27-Jul-2015 :
This year, rather than just sending the latest year of data, the complete dataset has been supplied. This has highlighted some differences in the data. From communications in the correspondence file for 2002 it appears that the Oceans and Fisheries meant to supply revised data for the stations supplied. This did not happen. The complete dataset includes these data revisions. Therefore, the whole dataset has now been re-entered.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 30-Jul-2015 :
Historic data was included in the above complete dataset. The datum for the period 1963-1988 is currently being queried. Until the Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirm the datum this data has been made Metric. Previously this station was flagged on review this station flag has now been removed.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 29-Jun-2017 :
Data for 2012-2015 updated for Canadian Atlantic network. The supplier provided a finalised version following a review by the regional office.
