After receiving levelling values for NAP from Douwe Dillingh RLR was calculated. NAP was re-levelled in 2005. RLR factors are 6.929m up to 2005 and 6.950m from 2005 onwards.

The note above stating that periods of the data are MTL is misleading. Sections of the original data were MTL. However, Pub. Sci. 5 states “For these periods a shallow water correction has been added to the mean heights of high and low water in order to give a mean height of sea-level comparable with those otherwise calculated for other periods.” Thus, a correction to MSL has already been applied.
