    PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

    Gage Photo

    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.

    Water temperatures collected at this gage often reflect Atlantic Ocean water temperatures during incoming tides and Barnegat Bay water temperatures on outgoing tides.

    Weather station data is available from this location at this link.

    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.

    LOCATION.--Lat 39°45'40", long 74°06'29" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Barnegat Light Borough, Ocean County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040301, on bulkhead at U.S. Coast Guard Station in Barnegat Light, 0.5 mi southwest of Barnegat Inlet, and 4.4 mi east of Pebble Beach in Barnegat Township.

    PERIOD OF RECORD.--Annual maximum tide, water years 1965-1980. Unpublished fragmentary gage-height record, September 1997 to October 2000. Continuous-record tide gage, November 2000 to current year.

    GAGE.--Water-stage, air temperature, water temperature, wind speed/direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. To determine approximate elevation in NGVD of 1929, add 1.26 ft.

    EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation recorded, 3.68 ft, Oct 25, 2005; minimum elevation recorded, -4.25 ft, Mar 9, 2005, although a lower tide likely occurred during period of missing record on Feb 16, 2007.

    EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation recorded, 4.93 ft (from mark on discontinued tidal crest-stage gage, adjusted to NAVD of 1988), Dec 11, 1992.
