Continuous Measurements

Environmental Research Station (UFS) at Mount Zugspitze, German Alps

The Environmental Research Station at the Schneefernerhaus is an unique research station located at 2650m ASL in the bavarian Alps just 300m below the Zugspitze mountain (Germany's highest mountain). Due to the high elevation especially radiometric measurements at higher frequencies are less affected by water vapor and boundary layer. This has clear advantages for the measurements of cloud liquid water as well as for snowfall studies.
