Gibraltar - severe timing errors 1998-2000, plus many gaps. During 2005 a new OTT Kalesto radar gauge was installed in the commercial harbour to replace the previous float gauge in the naval harbour approximately 2km to the South (i.e. 36 deg 7'55"N 5 deg 21'21"W replaced 36 deg 8'54"N 5 deg 21'54"W). The replacement gauge was installed by the Tide Gauge Inspectorate of the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL). POL - now renamed the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) remained the supplying authority.
