=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 2001Jan02 :
Recent work on vertical land movements in the UK can be found from
the University of Nottingham web site:
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 11-JUN-91 :
Aberdeen II 170/012 RLR(1965) is 10.4m below TGBM NJ9558 0581
=========================== BENCHMARK INFORMATION UPDATE ADDED 12-JUL-93 :
Aberdeen II 170/012 RLR(1965) is 10.4m below TGBM NJ9558 0581
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 16-AUG-95 :
The two Aberdeen records are because one (170/011) is MSL and the
other (170/012) is MTL (Mean Tide Level). There is a systematic 14 mm
difference in datum between the two which can be determined from
the period of overlap - see 'Trends in UK mean sea level' by
P.L.Woodworth, Marine Geodesy, 11, 57-87, 1987.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 25-NOV-96 :
Correspondence between MSL and MTL (series 170/011 and 170/012)
is poor around 1948 because of many missing days.
