Summary
Abstract: Tides were measured using a portable pressure transducer secured just below low water line. A 22 hour record was obtained. A connection was made to the local Pageos benchmark by leveling and a 2 hour GPS observation.

Additionally, the National Tidal Centre also has tidal data from Heard Island for 1948, 1980 and from 1986-1987.

TIDE GAUGES Ancillary Description
Quality The dataset between the time of deployment and recovery is complete. A chart showing what data are available is at the URL given above (Chart of available data). The dataset is complete except for a few days of records in late 1996. The portable gauge was deployed for 22 hours and when recovered the data were downloaded and processed. Tidal records are checked for gross errors in height values and obvious timing errors.
Access Constraints 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.
