When the method of recording data for this station was changed from measuring downwards to the more conventional method of measuring upwards the revised datum value did not look correct. Although the authority has been contacted several times the Hellenic Navy still quote the same datum value. Because of this the station remains flagged and data January 2003 onwards when the change occurred has been demoted to 'Metric' status. Investigation was also carried out to see if the gap in the RLR record between January 1984-December 1998 could be converted to RLR status. However, although nothing appears obvious within the data, previous unresolved datum issues still exist so the data remains 'Metric'

Following further information from the Hellenic Navy Oceanography Service an adjustment was made to the datum of data. The station flag has now been removed and the total dataset reinstated as RLR.
