Missing Data Flag:
All data are referred to tide gauge zero and linked to historic fixed bench marks.
The daily or monthly means do not reveal any obvious reference level shifts. Most questionable fluctuations are related to atmospheric or oceanographic events. Data spikes of about 10 cm or less have not been corrected.
