The complete dataset 1978-2007 has been supplied by UHSLC. After comparing with existing data values these were entered onto the database. RLR remains 5.389m.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 14-Oct-2013 :
Complete dataset Oct. 1978 to April 2012 downloaded onto the database from UHSLC
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 21-Oct-2015 :
Using the latest JASL data the complete dataset 1978-2014 has been loaded. From the JASL metadata level corrections have been made of between +2-3cm during the period 18.2.2008-04.04.2012.
Because of detrimental comments from the UH levelling sheet for this station i.e. BM@ is not stable so not a good Primary benchmark also in the survey of 2008 reference is made to the re-construction of the pier. Because of these comments the station has reverted to 'Metric' as although BM VI was latterley adopted as the Primary benchmark it is still not stable.
