Current research projects at FINO1 Meteorology Various meteorological parameters such as wind speeds, wind direction, air pressure and temperature are measured on FINO1. Hydrography As part of a research project, various hydrological parameters such as water level, current, sea state and water temperature are measured on the platform. Direction of sea state With four radar sensors in the surroundings of FINO1, the water level, the seaway and the direction of the sea state are determined. Gamma radiation At FINO1, environmental radioactivity is continuously monitored in order to quickly detect the radioactive contamination of the environment in an accident and estimate the expected radiation exposure. Georeferencing Via a GNSS system, a reference to the heights is realized on FINO1, so that the recorded water level data is exactly georeferenced or provided with an exact height reference. Environmental noise The aim of the JOMOPANS project is to develop a framework for a fully operational joint environmental noise monitoring program in the North Sea. Songbird migration FINO1 belongs to a network of automatic receiving stations in the area of the German Bight, which receive signals from songbirds, which are equipped with tiny radio telemetry transmitters. Bat migration Within the framework of the project BATMOVE the knowledge about the spatial and temporal distribution of migratory bats over the North and Baltic Sea as well as their connectivity shall be improved.
