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.
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
