Holyrood Wharf Weather Station

Deployed in April 2014, the weather station is located in the South Arm of Holyrood Bay, at the Marine Institute's Holyrood Marine Base in Conception Bay. The station consists of a AIRMAR WX200 WeatherStation and a Belfort 6500 Visibility Sensor.The WX200 WeatherStation sensors measure apparent wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, air temperature, relative humidity, and dew point. Wind chill values are provided from calculations using temperature and wind speed. The Belfort 6500 Visibility Sensor monitors visibility conditions over a range of 6 meters to 80 kilometers. Data from the station is available in near-real time and is utilized by mariners in this region in support of safer and more efficient marine operations.
