A Shom mission took place at Rangiroa from 23 to 26 of Februray 2021. TG and GNSS station have been totally removed prior to renovation work at Avatoru Harbour. E.Poirier.

2020-06-12 (16/06/2020)

Pacific group of SHOM (GOP) has warned us that construction works will be started during the second semestre of 2020 at Avatoru quay in Rangiroa.
This will probably require the total demolition of the actual tide gauge shelter. Therefore this means the interruption of all TG and GNSS recordings until the construction of a new observatory.

Schedule will be:
- second half of 2020: construction work at Avatoru cargo quay. This will probably impact benchmark RGR-11. It will last 15 month.
- 2021: construction work will take place at tide gauge site. This means total interruption of sea-level and GNSS records.
