After receiving levelling data for NAP up to 2005 and the value of NAP after re-levelling in 2005 the station was made RLR. RLR factor up to 2005 6.929m and for 2005 onwards 6.946m.

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.
