Data for the station Ilet la Mer has only recently been added to the database. The tide gauge is on an island off French Guiana. The data comprises three separate periods January-December 1978, May 1989-October 1996 and March 2004 onwards.

There was a change in Chart Datum in November 2013 for Ilet la Mere. The new datum is 10.7cm lower than the old datum. The recently complete dataset downloaded from SONEL has been adjusted for this.

Documentation added 2019-08-07

Using station information from the SHOM website the station has been made RLR. However, instead of a Benchmark name there is a description of the tide gauge. Because of this the Benchmark name has been entered on the RLR diagram TGBM.
