## How To Calculate Mean Sea Level?

The “instant mean sea level” is **obtained by subtracting the astronomical tide from the heights measured**.

## Is there any difference between MSL and RL?

**Reduced level** also know as RL is the value or the elevation of the point from mean sea level (MSL). You can measure the RL of any point on ground when you know the height of instrument of your level machine which is calculated by taking back sight on known value or elevation of point.

## What is RL in surveying?

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia. **Relative level** in surveying refers to equating elevations of survey points with reference to a common assumed datum. It is a vertical distance between survey point and adopted datum plane.

## How is MSL determined?

For a period of about 19 years the MSL has been **continuously measured using the rise and fall of the ocean on the seacoasts**. The atmospheric pressure and temperature also play a role in the continuous motion of the sea and being able to measure its level. A datum is the easiest way to calculate the MSL.

## What is the difference between sea level and mean sea level?

**zero**mean.

## Is mean sea level the same everywhere?

Jumping into the deep end or paddling in the shallows **the average sea level isn’t the same everywhere due to the Earth’s forces**. Mean sea level (MSL) is widely used as the standard reference for the altitude of towns mountains and aircraft.

## Is sea level 0 feet?

Sea level is the base for measuring elevation. **Sea level elevation is defined as 0 ft**. All other elevations are measured from sea level. Those places on Earth that are above sea level have positive elevations and those places on Earth that are below sea level have negative elevations.

## What is the distance above sea level called?

Elevation

Elevation is distance above sea level. Elevations are usually measured in meters or feet.Jan 21 2011
