Tide gauge benchmarksA PWD bronze plaque stamped 'TIDAL BM 1972', set in concrete deck at north west end of No. 1 berth.
Benchmark relationshipsTide Gauge Zero (TGZ) = 3.944m below TGBM. TGZ = 0.707m below Australian Height Datum (AHD)
Auxiliary benchmarksHR4: A PWD bronze plaque in concrete sheet pile copping, No.1 berth. NMV/F/2: Brass rod & identity tag in concrete base of the former front lead beacon. NMV/F/3: Brass rod & identity tag in concrete block at NW corner of silo. ESP33A: A standard L&S survey mark with concrete cover plate in cleared foreshore northwest of tide gauge. Datum for AHD heights = 2.340m AHD Esperence 172 = 64.824m AHD Esperence 173 = 59.831m AHD Esperence 171 = 58.339m AHD Tide Esperence - SEAFRAME Sensor Benchmark = 4.075m AHD Z1/73 = 4.036m AHD
Other relevant informationGauge datum was lowered by 0.152m on 1 January 1972. Geocentric measurements: Precise ephemeris, single point doppler fix, (Wireless) 1976. PSMSL also hold data from another gauge at Esperance (PSMSL Code 680/447 1966-1985).
