Documentation - date unknown

Data up to 1978 supplied by C.S.I.R.O. Tasmania as High and Low waters

Documentation added 1995-05-02

Station density along some sections of the Australian coast has meant that station codes 601 onwards have been re-ordered compared to those in earlier versions of the PSMSL data set.

Documentation added 1996-05-17

Data for 1978-1985 revised with new set received from the National Tidal Centre, Bureau of Meteorology, South Australia

Documentation added 2010-09-16

Tide gauge zero confirmed as LAT, with benchmark RM2 6.21 m above it. RLR (2009) is defined as 10.9 m below RM2.

Documentation added 2016-01-22

The value of MTL-MSL is unknown, though estimates are -20 mm for Rosslyn Bay and 4 mm for Bundaberg. Given that the level is probably unknown to more than 10 mm, we have set the 001 flag for the MTL for the period 1957-1977.
