The Weather Stations are a city wide meteorological measurement network, operated by the Meteorological Institute of Universität Hamburg. Since summer 2010 ten stations provide data on weather and climate in the Hamburg urban area. Together with the Institute of Soil Science at Center for Earth System Research an Sustainability CEN they were set up for the project HUSCO (Hamburg Urban Soil Climate Observatory) to gain deeper insight to the interactions between soil and atmosphere in the urban environment.
A typical Weather Station features sensors for air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, precipitation amount, surface temperature, solar radiation, air pressure and soil heat flux. In addition there are sensors for soil water content and temperature up to 1.6 m.
On this website you will find the latest measurement data, a look back to the history of the Weather stations with interesting events and anecdotes, news on projects and campaigns, as well as information on partners and supporters.
