USGS 01311145 EAST ROCKAWAY INLET AT ATLANTIC BEACH NY

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

Click to hidestation-specific text

 

LOCATION.--Lat 40°35'35", long 73°44'16" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Nassau County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02030202, at Nassau County Bridge Authority Atlantic Beach Bridge, in Atlantic Beach.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--August 2002 to current year. November 1972 to October 1998, in files of Town of Hempstead Department of Conservation & Waterways.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929. November 1972 to September 1989, water-stage recorder at site 900 ft west. October 1990 to October 1998, water-stage recorder at site 300 ft south.
REMARKS.--ELEVATION WY 2013: Records excellent, except those for Feb. 6-17, 20, Feb. 22 to Mar. 20, Mar. 22 to June 13 and July 24-25, which are good. Periods of missing record were estimated with MISTE using a linear regression with 01311850 and 01311143. Satellite and telephone elevation telemeters at station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 10.80 ft, Oct. 29, 2012; minimum elevation, -4.77 ft, Mar. 9, 2005.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Storm tides of Oct. 31, 1991, and Dec. 11, 1992, reached elevations of 6.7 and 7.7 ft, respectively, from information provided by Town of Hempstead Department of Conservation & Waterways. Minimum elevation recorded, -5.0 ft, Jan. 10, 1978, from information provided by Town of Hempstead Department of Conservation & Waterways.

Peak Flow and Stage Information

NAVD 1988 Datum Conversion Information


Elevation observations and tidal predictions for this station are reported to NGVD 1929. To convert data to NAVD 1988 subtract 1.10 ft. To convert data to MHHW datum subtract 3.48 ft. To convert data to MLLW datum add 1.51 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.
MHHW is mean higher high water, which is a site-specific datum determined by averaging the highest of the 2 high 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.
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.
