Comments

The daily and monthly means reveal no apparent reference level changes or trends and agree with the nearest stations.

The data for 1996-2000 were supplied with heights relative to MLLW. Consequently 1116mm was added to refer the data to tide gauge zero.

The data for 1998-2000 were supplied in non-GMT format and had to be shifted into GMT.
