Tide gauge benchmarksPSM 101: brass plaque in concrete at the base of the jetty on Home Is.
Benchmark relationshipsTide Gauge Zero (TGZ) = 2.410m below PMS 101. TGZ = 0.784m below Home Island Datum (approx. mean sea level)
Auxiliary benchmarksPSM 91: brass plug in concrete wharf (northern wall), Home Island. Trig R379: An RA Survey brass plaque stamped R379 set in concrete at ground level, situated on the most SW point of Home Island, adjacent to the Clunies Ross Residence.
Other relevant informationFloat/stilling well gauge (1961-1965) located on original jetty West Is. Float/stilling well gauge (1968-1971) located near jetty, West Is. Geocentric measurements: Doppler observations 1969 ISTS 040 on West Is. PSMSL also hold data from another gauge at Cocos Island (Keeling) (PSMSL Code 680/522, 1985-1987).
