Click to hidestation-specific text
During winter months, cold and ice may result in inaccurate real-time tide elevation data. Adjustments or deletions of this data can only be done after detailed analysis.


LOCATION.--Lat 39°03'25", long 74°45'54" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Stone Harbor Borough, Cape May County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040302, on county pier just north of east abutment of bridge on Stone Harbor Boulevard (County Route 657) at the western edge of Stone Harbor, 3.7 mi southeast of Cape May Court House, and 3.9 mi southwest of Avalon.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Annual maximum tide, water years 1964 to 1977 and 1979 to 1999. Continuous-record tide gage, October 1977 to May 1978 and March 2000 to current year. Unpublished fragmentary gage-height record, May 1997 to February 2000.
GAGE.--Tide elevation and water temperature recorder with telemetry 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.
REMARKS.--Periods of missing data are noted by dashed (---) lines.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 6.73 ft (from crest-stage gage), Oct 29, 2012; minimum elevation, -5.04 ft, Feb 17, 2007.

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 station managed by the New Jersey Water Science Center.
