Any well described format is welcome. Please clearly define the location (latitude and longitude), the time zone, the scientific units, and the flagging system for missing, interpolated, or erroneous data points.
The JASL would like to receive supplemental documents describing the tide gauge site, the instrumentation, the filters for data reduction, the calibration devises and methods, reference level definition, bench mark descriptions, quality control procedures, and a history of changes to the original data set.
Transfer can be accomodated through use of PC diskettes or other
media. For FTP transfer, first contact the JASL for instructions.
