The Meteorological Institute operates, often together with partners such as the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, measuring devices for weather and climate data in several projects. The measurements include basic data such as air pressure, temperature, humidity and wind speed and direction, but mostly also have a special scientific focus. The Wettermast Hamburg is one of the highest boundary layer masts in the world at 280 m. Our own high-resolution rain radar is installed on the roof of the Geomatikum, and we have set up smaller weather stations at several locations to investigate Hamburg's urban climate. As a special project, we have equipped the tower of the old Nikolaikirche in the city center with temperature and humidity sensors at various heights and a wind measurement on the top of the tower at a height of 147 m.
The most important and interesting data of our stations are published on the Internet::
- Wettermast Hamburg
- Hamburg rain radar (formerly PATTERN-project)
- Weather stations in urban area (formerly HUSCO-stations)
- Memorial St. Nikolai
- DWD NinJo (Access with UHH id only)
