Additional Information

 Wave radar location           50° 37.043' N  03° 25.415' W 


Tides are measured by a WaveRadar REX, which was de-comissioned from Teignmouth Pier.  It is deployed at Exmouth Marina by kind permission of the marina owners.

The tide guage was deployed on 24 September 2015.  Initially, the data were levelled only approximately but a full control survey was conducted subsequently and the real-time data are now correctly aligned to OD and have been corrected back to 10:20 GMT on 16 October 2015 when the data feed became constant. All prior data should be disregarded.
