This automatic realtime atmospheric monitoring station is positioned at the University of Malta at latitude 35o54'08.64"N and longitude 14o29'03.51"E at a height of 28.0m 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 partial funding through the RISKMED project which targets to provide early warnings of adverse atmospheric conditions. The station runs in parallel with the other meteo monitoring station on the Marsaxlokk breakwater.
 

The station consists of robust sensors from Aanderaa Instruments measuring Air Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure, Net Radiation, Solar Radiation and Relative Humidity every 2 minutes. Data is transmitted to the control room 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.
