Title: Station
Short Name: Station
Status: In Work
Abstract:

The geographic location at which tidal observations are conducted. Also, the facilities used to make tidal observations. These may include a tide house, tide (water level) gauge, tide staff, and tidal bench marks. See primary control tide station, secondary control tide station, tertiary tide station, and subordinate tide station | Description Source: http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/publications/CO-OPS_Specifications_and_Deliverables_for_installation_operation_and_removal_of_water_level_stations_updated_October_2013.pdf

Station Id NUMBER Unique ID given to the Station where instrument was deployed. | Description Source: DOC/NOAA/NOS/COOPS > Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS), National Ocean Service (NOS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC)

STATION NAME Unknown Station name is the general-purpose identifier for the station. It can be up to 80 alphanumeric characters. | Description Source: DOC/NOAA/NOS/COOPS > Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS), National Ocean Service (NOS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC)
100
Station Datum NUMBER For marine applications, a base elevation used as a reference from which to reckon heights or depths. It is called a tidal datum when defined in terms of a certain phase of the tide. Tidal datums are local datums and should not be extended into areas which have differing hydrographic characteristics without substantiating measurements. In order that they may be recovered when needed, such datums are referenced to fixed points known as bench marks.
