The orthometric height of the ARP was determined by 3-wire differential leveling to NGS benchmarks G 14 Reset and R 446, using a Zeiss Ni2 level, to be 975.587m on July 15, 2003.
*An orthometric height of the ARP was determined using first-order equipment and methods to be 975.581m. That level run will be submitted to NGS for publication.
