    This station is operated in cooperation with:
       Nassau County Office of Emergency Management


    LOCATION.--Lat 40°53'18.8", long 73°38'16.8" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Nassau County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02030201, on southern shore at Nassau County Welwyn Preserve, at Glen Cove.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--May 2009 to current year.
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929.
    REMARKS.--REMARKS.--Records good, except those for Oct. 1-27, May 29 to June 3, July 20 to Sept. 15, and Sept. 21-30, which are fair; and those for Oct. 28 to May 28 and June 4-21, and those estimated from reconstructed graph for Dec. 9, Feb. 25, Mar. 13, 22-23, 29-30, and June 22 to July 19, which are poor. Interruptions of record during June 22 to July 19 due to siphon line malfunction. Satellite elevation telemeter at station.
    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 8.55 ft, Mar. 13, 2010; minimum, -0.26 ft, Dec. 8, 2009.
    EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Storm tide of Dec. 11, 1992, reached an elevation of 11.5 ft, from high-water mark at site 1.9 mi south-southwest.
    EXTREMES FOR CURRENT YEAR.--Maximum elevation, 8.55 ft, Mar. 13; minimum, -0.26 ft, Dec. 8, 12.

    Station Picture

    Estuary or ocean water surface elevation for this station is reported to NGVD 1929. To convert data to NAVD 1988 subtract 1.08 ft. These corrections vary from site to site.

    NGVD 1929 is the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, formerly called "mean sea level" or "Sea Level Datum of 1929." NGVD 1929 was a general adjustment of the first-order level nets fit to mean sea level at 26 tide gages in the US and Canada.
    NAVD 1988 is the North American Vertical Datum of 1988, which is a geodetic datum derived from a general adjustment of the first-order level nets fit to 1 tide gage in eastern Canada.
