Russian term or phrase:НТУ
As found in a legend on a bathymetric survey of under water/coastal topography. It shows a line, and the full verbiage runs: "Изобаты сечения через 0.5 метра (приведены к НТУ)."
I ran this on sokr.ru, and I believe it is наивысший теоретический уровень. Could any of our colleagues confirm this, as well as provide a little more specifics on just what this term means.
I checked with the client (an engineering firm) and they ultimately decided that this was an English term, Lowest Astronomical Tide (LAT). Thanks very much for your assistance. 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
