Wave and tide data are measured using an Etrometa step gauge, which was first installed in January 2008


30/03/2011  The new Etrometa step gauge has been installed and is sending data to the website.

23/03/2011  The WaveRadar Rex is being replaced by an Etrometa step gauge.  The Rex has been very reliable but operational restrictions where the gauge could be mounted have meant that it could become swamped by very large tides.  The Rex will be refurbished and kept as a spare. 

29/06/2010  The refurbished Rex has been re-installed.

19/02/2010  Since the instrument had to be mounted at a less than ideal elevation, the Rex has been swamped again and is undergoing refurbishment in Sweden.  Discussions are underway to replace the instrument with a step gauge.

28/10/2009  The wave guide was re-installed following refurbishment due to excessive corrosion.

15/07/2009  Data feed from the instrument has been increasingly erratic.  The fault is under investigation.

29/04/2009  WaveRadar and met instruments serviced.

18/11/2009 The temperature sensor on the Met station was replaced

22/10/2008 Scheduled service
