Abstract: The recent discovery of leveling connections between the bench marks of the tide stations at Fort Point Sausalito, and the Presidio, San Francisco, California, between 1954 and the present, provide a continuous set of tidal measurements in the Golden Gate area. This is the only location in the United States with over 100 yr of continuous tidal measurements. Such a long series of tidal measurements are important in global sea level analysis, variability of water level relative to land over long periods and historical tidal boundary determination.
