The Aanderaa pressure gauge at Fuerteventura has been moved to a different position in the harbour and replaced by a new MIROS radar gauge. Both old and new gauges were running in parallel for the period 1.12.2009- 07.02.2011.for inter-comparison purposes. A bias (mean difference) of 4.25cm was found between the two gauges. See paper B. Perez et al 'Overlapping sea level time series measured using different technologies: an example from the REDMAR Spanish network'

Further investigation revealed that the bias was due to a problem with the old pressure gauge. Data from this has been revised. Complete dataset was re-entered onto the database.
