Description 
Summary

Includes data on sea levels recorded by two tide gauges located in the ports of Palma (Mallorca) and Ciudadela (Menorca) with a sample interval of 1 minute. The main purpose was the study of the seiches (Rissague) of the port of Ciudadela. Data was transmitted by modem telephone to the IEO centre for the Balearic Islands. There are time intervals for which there is no data; this is due to the fact that electric storms frequently damaged the equipment.
