    This station is operated in cooperation with:
       NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
       Town of Hempstead Dept.of Conservation and Waterways


    LOCATION.--Lat 40°35'36", long 73°35'03" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Nassau County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02030202, at Town of Hempstead East Marina, 750 ft east of Loop Parkway Bridge, in Point Lookout. Water-quality monitor at site 100 ft north.
    PERIOD OF RECORD.--December 1997 to current year. January 1974 to June 1994, in files of Town of Hempstead Department of Conservation & Waterways. Precipitation, wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure records for March 1998 to current year, and solar radiation records for August 2004 to current year, are unpublished and available in files of the Geological Survey.
    GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929. January 1974 to June 1994, water-stage recorder at site 150 ft northeast.
    REMARKS.--Records excellent, except those for Oct. 1 to Jan. 1 and Feb. 27 to Aug. 30, which are good. Satellite and telephone elevation, precipitation, and wind speed and direction telemeter at station. Telephone telemeter for air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, and solar radiation parameters at station.

    Elevation (observed) and tide elevation (predicted) for this station are reported to NGVD 1929. To convert data to NAVD 1988 subtract 1.13 ft. To convert data to MLLW datum add 1.10 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.
    MLLW is mean lower low water, which is a site-specific datum determined by averaging the lowest of the 2 low tides that occur each day over a 19-year tidal epoch. For tide gages with less than 19 years of record, this datum is estimated by correlation with long-term tide gages.
