Unavailable at present.

Quality Assessment

Comments

There is no evidence of any obvious reference level shifts. Most questionable fluctuations are related to timing problems with the gauge, only extreme cases are noted below.

The data for 1990-2000 were supplied with heights relative to MLLW. Consequently 649mm 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.
