The RLR datums for both Stanley I (863/001) and Stanley II (863/002)
have been set to be 10.7 m below benchmark A which is the same as 12.83 m below
the PWD Office BM. The two RLR series can be combined if required
although there is a large passage of time between them.

All data from October 1992 onwards were obtained from various B gauges (a form of accurate pressure tide gauge) located at the east end of Stanley harbour. However, data for October 2008 - April 2012 were obtained from a Kalesto radar tide gauge installed at the same location.
