Looking at the dataset as a whole. There is no datum information for 1987 data so this has to remain 'Metric'. From 1988-1993 Benchmark is BM3 2.898m above Datum reference TSO1986 RLRFAC is 5.302m. 1994-1995 benchmark and datum remain the same but relationship is adjusted to 2.924m with RLRFAC 5.276m. 1996-1997 benchmark is still BM3 and datum TSO1986 but relationship is adjusted again to 2.952 with RLRFAC 5.248m. 1998-2000 Benchmark BM3 and datum still TSO1986 relationship reverts to 2.924m RLRFAC again 5.276m. 2001-2002 Benchmark changes to BM 4A 3.775m above datum TSO1986.

The data point for San Jose for August 2001 has been flagged as suspect. However, it is extremely difficult to determine whether spikes are real or not in the Philippine stations as there is rarely a station close enough to 'buddy check'it with. Gauge type is THALIMEDES
