GAGE.--Tide elevation, precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, and wind speed and direction recorder with telemetry and tidal crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. To determine approximate elevations to NGVD of 1929, add 1.31 ft. From water year 1965-85 and 1992, datum of crest-stage 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 present datum.
