Tides were measured using a portable pressure transducer secured to fast ice at the mouth of Pagodroma Gorge with the transducer about 4 metres below low water line. A 30 day record was obtained.
Documentation dated 2001-03-07 Beaver Lake and the Stillwell Hills
In Dec 1996 - Jan 1997 a temporary pressure type tide gauge was deployed at Beaver Lake and the Stillwell Hills in open water. Timed water level measurements were made over this period. From these data a value for MSL was found for Beaver Lake and the Stillwell Hills.
The data set between the time of deployment and recovery is complete. A chart showing what data are available at the URL below (Chart of available data.) The dataset is complete except for a few days of records in late 1996. The portable gauge was deployed for 30 days and when recovered the data were downloaded and processed. These records and the leveling records were sent to the National Tidal Centre where a value for mean sea level was derived. Tidal records are checked for gross errors in height values and obvious timing errors. Further checks are done by NTC during processing.
Records are stored in the form in which they are retrieved from the tide gauges and as converted data in the form of water heights above the tide gauge transducer. Raw data and processed data are available on request from the National Tidal Centre.
