After the redevelopment of some archive space at the National Oceanography Centre, the NOC Applications team have donated an historic tide gauge ledger to BODC.
Once we’ve logged the ledger in our accession system, we hope make the data available online, by including it with the other books that are being scanned as part of the JISC eContent programme.
The ledger is for Hilbre Island, covers 1854, and will fill in a gap in our records. The data inside are tidal heights recorded quarter-hourly. The book also includes meteorological information, such as the wind’s strength and direction.
