Water Level Station History

Metadata Updated: October 12, 2020

Images contain station history information for 175 stations in the National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON). The NWLON is a network of long-term, continuously operating water-level stations throughout the USA, including its island possessions and territories and the Great Lakes. NWLON stations are the foundation for reference stations for NOAA's tide prediction products, and serve as controls in determining tidal datums for all short-term water-level stations. Additional histories for approximately 6,000 secondary and tertiary stations are also included, but are likely incomplete due to defunding of the task prior to completion. Images created through a Climate Database Modernization Program task in partnership with NOAA's National Ocean Service, Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS)/Requirements and Development Devision. The task leader was oceanographer Thomas F. Landon, and then Manoj R. Samant. Scanning began with a pilot in fall 2003, and continued through early 2011.
