Levelling information recently supplied by the Finnish Meteorological Institute
confirm that benchmark 52234 no longer exists following the re-location of the
gauge. Primary benchmark is now 89307 3.472m above gauge datum.

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.
