(meteorology)
The vertical distance above mean sea level that is adopted as the reference datum level for all current measurements of atmospheric pressure at the station.

As they studied the period 2003-14, they noticed a consistent pattern of station elevation moving upward for the years coinciding with recent declines in precipitation, streamflow, and groundwater levels.
3, DEM map with an accuracy of 30m was inserted in equation 1 instead of each station elevation, and precipitation map of each period was obtained.
The factor used to reduce station pressures to altimeter settings contains an exponential term in it that, in turn, depends on the station elevation and hence can get fairly large rather quickly for high-elevation stations.
If you are familiar with the topography, it's hard to miss the obvious connection between station elevation and altimeter setting.
Pressure Altitude/Density Altitude (PADA)--computes the following parameters: sea level pressure (SLP), altimeter setting (ALSTG), pressure altitude (PA), density altitude (DA) and the standard atmosphere based on the upper/lower station pressure and the following optional data fields: station elevation (for ALSTG, PA, DA), 12-hour mean temperature (for SLP), temperature (for DA) and dew point for DA.
However, no winds are forecast within 1500 feet of station elevation (the surface) and no temperatures are forecast for the 3000-foot level or for any level within 2500 feet of station elevation.
One station is at an elevation of 99 feet, and the second station elevation is 101 feet.
If all of the station elevations are included in the final map, the map becomes cluttered and is confusing to use.
Extensive brick work surveys have been undertaken on the Power Station elevations by specialist contractors PAYE Stonework & Restoration Ltd ahead of the brickwork repairs;
Errors in intermediate rod readings will result in incorrect station elevations.
Degree-day totals, calculated for the period 1 June-31 August of each year at all stations in Figure 1, were scaled to sea level using station elevations derived from the DEM, the standard environmental lapse rate (-6.
