The old SRD acoustic gauge at La Coruna has been replaced by a new MIROS radar gauge. Because of a sudden malfunction towards the end of the operation of the SRD gauge both old and new gauges were running in parallel for just a 4 month period 25.04.2008-28.10.2008 for inter-comparison purposes. A bias (mean difference) of -2.15cm was calculated between the two gauges. See paper B. Perez et al ' Overlapping sea level time series measured using different technologies: an example from the REDMAR Spanish network'.

Further investigation from Puertos del Estado established that the bias between the old and new datasets was due to a problem with the old Acoustic gauge. The old dataset has been revised because of this. Whole dataset was re-entered onto the database.

At the request of Puertos del Estado the latitude and longitude have been changed from 43.366667 -8.383333 which derives from the previously supplied degrees and minutes value to 43.35731 -8.38933 which is the position of the new gauge in decimal degrees.

During 2013 an error was detected with the dataset for REDMAR station Coruna. After lengthy investigation the complete dataset has been revised by Puertos del Estado.

On instructions from Begona at PE the complete dataset 1992-2014 has been reloaded. It was realised there were problems from the istallation of the MIROS gauge and when this was replaced in Nov 2011 due to delamination. Following this a new time series has been generated with a datum change of 4.5cm for data 2007-2011 and 2.5cm for the historic data 1992-2007. PE has confirmed that all changes and corrections have been documented internally.
