Wave buoys

"Baby" buoy at Utö Marine Research Station.

Finnish Meteorological Institute has four operational wave buoys in the Baltic Sea. Wave measurements are also made in other areas during research campaigns. Wave buoys provide observations of significant wave height, wave direction and period. Also sea surface temperature is measured by the wave buoys.In addition, FMI has one online Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) measuring waves.
