Benchmark relationshipsThe tide gauge is located in the National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (NIOF) located in the Eastern Harbour of Alexandria.
Auxiliary benchmarksNIOF-1 Benchmark close to the radar sensor support NIOF-2 Benchmark in South corner of conference room building
Other relevant informationThe tide gauge has not yet been levelled into the local benchmark network, so data are uncalibrated heights from the Kalesto sensor.
