AMETS - Weather Buoy
Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site (AMETS)
As part of the Ocean Energy Programme, an automatic weather station was installed on the Special Mark at Berth A by Commissioners of Irish Lights (CIL). The weather station provides important information for all seafarers and is an essential source of data for researchers in the Ocean Energy community. The weather station is part of a wider oceanographic monitoring programme at the site, where real-time wave tide and current data are collected.
The data collected in the Weather Station is summarised in the data table below. Note that these are real-time data readings and are not quality-controlled.
