Autonomous platforms

Finnish Meteorological Institute maintains marine observation network in the Northern Baltic Sea. The network includes Argo-floats for open sea hydrographic profiling, ice drifters, wave buoys, and bottom-mounted moorings for hydrography, currents and sea-ice thickness measurements. Most of the operational data is available through FMI open access data portal. The FINMARI partnership is also planning a network of profiling buoys close to the four main field stations.
