This mark was found as part of the recovery of station OLEY, PID LY1542. Photos and description can be found on the [B][URL=http://www.geocaching.com/mark/details.aspx?PID=ly1542]OLEY[/URL][/B] page.

[I]A report on the condition of this reference mark was submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:[/I]

Reference mark 2 was recovered in good condition. It is now flush with the ground. The blazed trees were not found. A new route is required because the roads described are no longer passable by vehicle. The station may be reached on foot from the lower day-use area of Nescopeck State Park, but a stream crossing is necessary. If permission can be obtained, the best approach may be to park along the shoulder of Interstate 80 westbound and hike approximately 350 feet directly north to the mark.

[b]Mark recovered in good condition.[/b]

Reference mark OLEY No. 2 is set in the top of a square concrete monument located approximately 78 feet south-southwest of the station. It is now well exposed, in very good condition, and the stamped designation is clearly legible.

Control Text

  • 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.
