Following correspondence with Glen Rowe it was confirmed that the datum at Timaru has been as follows: Pre 1976 TGZ =5.301m below benchmark UD 44 Post 1976 TGZ =5.286m below UD 44 Previous benchmark UD 42 is 0.466m above UD 44

The Kaikoura earthquake of 23:02 on the 13 November 2016 impacted on a number of stations in the central part of New Zealand. Because of this the hourly height values for several stations from 14th November 00:00hrs have been adjusted by LINZ. For station Timaru the adjust is -0.008m.
Documentation added 2020-08-25
The adjustment due to the Kaikōura earthquake of 2016 has been removed as relative sea level series should include land movement.

Benchmark UD44 has been destroyed, so UD42 is now the primary benchmark again

A revised copy of the New Zealand data values for Timaru Harbour has been received from the data supplier the Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). The revised data begins from 2014. This exercise has been carried out to correct some anomalies with the high frequency data. Adjustment has also been applied to the data to account for the Kaikoura earthquake by creating a new datum TGZ December 2016 5.744m below benchmark UD42. Consequently the Metric data has had the effect of Kaikoura removed but the effect of the earthquake is still evident in the RLR data.
