Datum of the pressure measurements is not maintained from one deployment to the next.
Pressure transducers typically have long-term tendencies to drift. However, the originators have calibrated the instrument before deployment and due to the shallow resting level of about 2.3 m at high tide, the potential drift would be very small. Post-retrieval calibrations have not been performed. Please refer to the originators for the up-to-date status. For this data set, no explicit correction has been applied in this regards.
The plot of the hourly data minus the predicted tides reveals data with excellent timing characteristics and no obviously erroneous data.
