Prior to the gauge being moved the Primary benchmark 1925-1969 was 52307 4.407m above gauge datum. When the gauge was moved benchmark 1970-1988 was N7101 4.774m relative to the datum. This is no longer used and was replaced by 89110 3.970m relative to gauge datum in 1989.

Following the 2016 levelling exercise some adjustments have been made to the benchmark reference heights - at Mantyluoto this was +2mm for BM 89110. The adjustments are a result of more accurate measuring and calculations using the N2000 height system. The RLR diagram has been re-drawn because of this.

Data values for November and December 2014 have been revised by the Finnish Meteorological Institute.

Documentation added 2019-11-27

From 2018 onwards the averages of the Finnish sea level data will be based on 1 min observations. Values are calculated in Finnish normal time (EET).
The data are relative to the reference surface of the Finnish sea level observations and thus the datum is the tide gauge zero.
