The TIMESTAMP datatype is an extension on the DATE datatype. In addition to the datetime elements of the DATE datatype, the TIMESTAMP datatype holds fractions of a second to a precision between zero and nine decimal places, the default being six. There are also two variants called TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE and TIMESTAMP WITH LOCAL TIME ZONE. As their names imply, these timestamps also store time zone offset information.
