Meteorological measurements at FINO 2

Construction plan of FINO 2 Platform.

The measurement and evaluation of selected meteorological and hydrological parameters is the main goal of the FINO 2 platform at the site “Kriegers Flak” about 33 km north of the island Rügen. The main part of the measurements is carried out at the 100m mast.

The following list describes the meteorological parameters that are measured as time series data and delivered to the FINO database at the Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie (BSH).

  • Wind speed and direction
  • Air temperature
  • Air temperature difference
  • Water surface temperature
  • Air pressure
  • Humidity of air and air density
  • Global irradiance and UV irradiance
