Metres above sea level
Redirected here: feet above sea level; AMSL means "above mean sea level", and may be used for heights specified in any units.
Metres above mean sea level (MAMSL) or simply metres above sea level (MASL or m.a.s.l.) is a standard metric measurement in metres of the elevation of a location in reference to a historic mean sea level. Mean sea levels are affected by climate change and other factors and change over time. For this and other reasons, recorded measurements of elevation above sea level might differ from the actual elevation of a given location over sea level at a given moment.
