The automatic realtime weather monitoring station is positioned on the tip of the Marsaxlokk breakwater at latitude 35o49'05.20"N and longitude 14o32'59.00"E at a heigth of 4.5m above mean sea level. The station is an addition to the meteo-marine observing system of the Physical Oceanography Unit at the IOI-Malta Operational Centre of the University of Malta. It has been set up with funding through the RISKMED project which targets to provide early warnings of adverse atmospheric conditions. The station also provides important meteo information for the safer navigation of ships into and out of the port of Marsaxlokk.

 

The station consists of robust sensors from Aanderaa Instruments measuring Wind Magnitude and Direction, Wind Gust, Atmospheric Pressure and Air Temperature every 2 minutes. Data is transmitted by UHF to a control station at the OilTanking Malta Ltd. premises, transferred by FTP to the server at the PO-Unit centre where it is quality controlled, elaborated and published on this webpage with updated charts every 15 minutes. Time on the station is synchronised every hour with a GMT Internet Time server.
