The Aanderra pressure gauge at Hierro has been moved and replaced by a new MIROS radar sensor. Both old and new gauges were operating for the period 14.11.2009- 15.06.2010 for inter-comparison purposes. During this period a bias (mean difference) between the two gauges was calculated as -0.29cm. A malfunction in the old sensor was also detected. There was also a datum change of -9cm from Nov. 2011. See B. Perez et al paper 'Overlapping sea level time series measured using different technologies: an example from the REDMAR Spanish network'.
