Levelling information recently supplied by the Finnish Meteorological Institute
confirms Primary benchmark remains 7HB 4.48m above gauge datum of 1904 onwards.
Previous datum for 1879-1903 was 1.967m above the present datum.

Following the 2016 levelling exercise some adjustments have been made to the benchmark reference heights - at Helsinki this was +1mm for BM 7HB. The adjustments are a result of more accurate measuring and calculations using the N2000 height system. The RLR diagram has been re-drawn because of this.
