Brief description

Contains observations of sea level at Port Arthur, Tasmania during the period June 1999 to September 2002.

Lineage

Location: Port Arthur, Tasmania
43 deg 08 min 50 secs South, 147 deg 51 min 10 sec East

Start time: 04:13:51 GMT on 24/6/1999

End time: 04:31:58 GMT on 20/9/2002

Data was recorded using an Aquatrak 4100 acoustic tide gauge mounted in a stilling well with a Vitel WLS2 logger. The data consists of averages taken over three minutes, recorded every six minutes.

Data includes the time (as seconds from midnight on 1/1/1999) and sea level (measured downwards from the tide gauge zero).

A small correction has been applied to allow for clock drift.

There is a small amount (around 0.03%) of missing data. Where data is missing, those records are also missing; i.e. there are no "missing data" flags.

The tide gauge zero is 3299.6 mm ABOVE AHD (Tasmania).

For information on other local survey marks, see:

Watson, C.S., 1999. A Contribution to Absolute Sea Level in Tasmania, B. Surv. (Hons.) thesis, 200 pp., University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Temperature corrections were applied as per:

Hunter, J.R., 2003. A note on the temperature correction of the Aquatrak acoustic tide gauge, J. Atmos. Oceanic Technol., Vol. 20, 1230-1235.

Format of data in file present_dat_gmt:

First column: time in seconds after 00:00:00 GMT on 1/1/1999

Second column: distance in mm measured DOWNWARDS from tide gauge zero to water surface

Notes

Purpose
To contribute to the knowledge of past sea level rise in the Southern Hemisphere.
