ASLVZZ01 - The elevation of the sea surface to a known datum, measured in metres.
The daily or monthly means do not reveal any obvious reference level shifts. Data spikes of about 10cm or less have not been corrected.
Completeness index (CI)
Sea level data from Japan is processed for each year. Occasionally data is missing from the data sets, either because the data set does not cover the whole year or because data has been flagged null. The number of cycles in a year with no missing data is calculated (based on the sample interval and whether a leap year). The completeness index calculates what proportion of the data expected in a year is present and not flagged null.
Quality index (QI)
During processing cycles considered suspect within a series are flagged M. The quality index calculates what proportion of the data available is not considered suspect.
