Tide gauge benchmarkTGBM (LZBM) was used from January 1973 to July 1980, and is about 6km from the tide gauge. Since then a new TGBM has been used - details not available.
Benchmark relationshipsTide Gauge Zero (TGZ) = 6.110m below TGBM (LZBM)
TGZ = 7.573m below TGBM (NEW) after 1 July 1980
TGZ = 2.863m below MSL of Yellow Sea (1956-old)
TGZ = 2.902m below MSL of Yellow Sea (1985-new)
