Weather and climate
The measuring equipment is located on the premises of the Leipzig Institute of Meteorology (51°33'33.N, 12°38'88.E) on a meadow behind the institute building and on the institute's tower.
The Collm Observatory is located at the northern base of the Collm in the forest. The measuring equipment is located on the tower of the institute building (51°30'44.N, 13°00'27.E) above the tree line.
The weather datas are free for use.
The weather datas are gatherd exclusively for educational purposes and are no alternative or substitute for the official data of the Deutscher Wetterdienst (German Weather Service). Furthermore, no guarantee can be given for the accuracy and completeness of the data.
The mesosphere/lower thermosphere (MLT) is one of the scientifically most challenging regions of the atmosphere. The MLT is the region where wave-wave and wave-mean flow interaction processes lead to a mean circulation regime that is extremely far from radiative equilibrium. Although radar measurements of MLT winds are possible since more than half a century, our current knowledge on MLT dynamics is still far from complete, mostly due to incomplete coverage of the global wind field by ground-based remote sensing system.
As a contribution to our knowledge of MLT dynamics a SKiYMET meteor radar is operated at Collm Observatory (51.3°N, 13°E) continuously since August 2004. The measurements deliver hourly wind information in the height range 80-100 km and daily mean temperatures near the mesopause. Together with the earlier LF wind measurements peformed at Collm 1959 - 2008 a unique MLT circulation parameter dataset is available.
All data are to be considered preliminary. They are only for information and must be validated by the authority before using!
