Operative test system in place at Lindesnes Lighthouse

As of from March 7th a complete sensor package has been in operation at Lindesnes Lighthouse. The sensor package serves as an operative test unit in the Eurostars project MORA. The MORA project has set out to improve short term wave forecasting by tighter integrating of radar sensor data and wave propagation models. The setup at Lindesnes measures the sea surface at multiple ranges with two different radar sensor types. The received data is used for development and testing of the integration models for short term wave field prediction. The radar sensors, and the reference sensors are also made available to the Lighthouse keeper, serving as a tool for situational awareness.
