LOCATION.--Lat 40°34'25", long 73°53'08" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, Kings County, NY, Hydrologic Unit 02030202, at Metropolitan Transportation Authority Marine Parkway Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge, near Floyd Bennett Field.
ELEVATION WY 2013: Records excellent, except those for Oct. 1-28, Oct. 30 to Jan. 17, Feb. 8-26, Feb. 28 to Mar. 6, Mar. 11 to Apr. 17, Aug 6-9, and Aug. 12 to Sept. 30, which are good; and for Oct. 29, Feb. 27, and Mar. 7-10, which are fair. Satellite and telephone elevation, velocity, and velocity-sensor depth telemeters at station.
Streamflow at this site is affected significantly by astronomical tides. By convention, the U.S. Geological Survey has established ebb (seaward) flows as positive flows and flood (landward) flows as negative flows. Unfiltered 6-minute stage, velocity, and discharge data are available upon request.
Maximum discharge, 404,000 ft³/s, Mar. 17, 2016; maximum elevation, 11.75 ft, Oct. 29, 2012; minimum discharge, -383,000 ft³/s, Mar. 20, 2015; minimum elevation, -5.23 ft, Mar. 9, 2005.
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 3.75 ft. To convert data to MLLW datum add 1.84 ft. These corrections vary from site to site.
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.
