Ferrol 2 is a new station and is part of the REDMAR network.Gauge is a MIROS radar sensor.
Benchmark is NGX-804 5.559m relative to datum REDMAR and 3.679m relative to IGN datum.
Hardware problems (de-lamination) were initially experienced at the new gauge. This meant an
adjustment of 6cm. The supplied data has been adjusted accordingly so the complete dataset was re-loaded.
See paper B. Perez et al 'Overlapping sea level time series measured usin different technologies:
an example from the REDMAR Spanish network'.
