The water temperature data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once/year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
This tide gage is operated as part of the New Jersey Tide Telemetry System. The system is cooperatively funded by the State of New Jersey and the USGS.

GAGE.--Tide elevation recorder and tidal crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. From October 1964 to September 1999, datum of tidal crest-stage gage was 0.00 ft NGVD of 1929. From October 1977 to May 1978, tide elevation recorder was located at south side of bridge and datum of gage at 0.00 ft NGVD of 1929. Data published to NGVD of 1929 can be adjusted to NAVD of 1988 by subtracting 1.31 ft. Online annual tidal peaks have been adjusted to current datum.
