The data for Kiel-Holtenau was measured to PN = NN-500cm Normal depth of PN=500cm. Normal Null(NN)is a German datum related to levels at Potsdam near Berlin. It is similar to ODN in the UK and the NAP in Holland. It is unusual therefore that the German stations have been made RLR as it 'breaks the rules' of RLR. Data now refers to TGZ.
