Well I can only assume this is destroyed but I cannot be absolutely sure. I measured exactly via the description and right where it said it was there was a large prairie dog hole. There was also a traffic cone over the hole, making it possible that base civil engineerin will replace it.

Control Text

  • This mark is at Albuquerque Int''l Airport (ABQ)
  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
