DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1961 1.15 MI N FROM MONARCH. ABOUT 1.15 MILES NORTH ALONG U. S. HIGHWAY 89 FROM THE DISTRICT 23 SCHOOL AT MONARCH, IN SECTION 27, T 16 N, R 7 E, 16 FEET SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE HIGHWAY, SET IN THE TOP OF THE NORTHEAST END OF THE SOUTHEAST HEADWALL OF A LARGE CONCRETE CULVERT, AND ABOUT LEVEL WITH THE HIGHWAY.

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.
