**NOTICE: The New Jersey Water Science Center has transitioned to a new data management software package. While you may not have noticed this transition, some sites may have problems or delays in being updated. We are actively monitoring these conditions and are resolving them as quickly as possible. See the Dec 8 news entry for more information at: https://help.waterdata.usgs.gov/news

During winter months, cold and ice may result in inaccurate real-time tide elevation data. Adjustments or deletions of this data can only be done after detailed analysis.

 


SURFACE-WATER RECORDS

LOCATION.--Lat 39°22'40", long 74°25'25" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Atlantic City, Atlantic County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040302, on bulkhead at U.S. Coast Guard Station Atlantic City on Clam Creek, 400 ft south of Absecon Channel, in Atlantic City, 2,200 ft southeast of the south end of bridge on State Route 87 over Absecon Channel, 1.3 mi northwest of Absecon Inlet, and 3.3 mi southwest of Brigantine city hall.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Unpublished fragmentary gage-height record, Jun 16, 1997 to Jun 17, 2000. Continuous-record tide gage, Jun 18, 2000 to current year.
GAGE.--Tide elevation, water temperature, precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind speed, and wind direction recorder with telemetry and tidal crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. To determine approximate elevations to NGVD of 1929, add 1.33 ft.
REMARKS.--Periods of missing data are noted by dashed (---) lines.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 7.81 ft, Oct 29, 2012; minimum elevation, estimated, -5.5 ft, Feb 17, 2007, although a lower tide may have occurred during period of missing record Mar 9, 2005.

Weather station data are available from this location at this link.

The water temperature data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once/year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.

This station managed by the New Jersey Water Science Center.
