Meteorological and Actinometric Network
The extensive meteorological network of almost 260 fully automated meteorological stations, established by IERSD all over Greece, offers to the public, in almost real-time (data refreshment every 10 min), information about prevailing meteorological conditions. Meteorological parameters that are presented are the following: Air temperature (ºC) and relative humidity (%), Atmospheric pressure (hPa), Wind speed (m/s or Km/h) and wind direction (deg.), Total precipitation (mm) (rainfall, snow, or hail). In selected meteorological stations, the incoming total solar radiation (W/m²) and ultra-violet (UV) radiation (W/m²), incident at a horizontal surface, are also provided to the public.
The expanding network of radiometric stations includes two stations within Attica region, the historic radiometric station in Thissio and the newest in Penteli, but also six more stations scattered throughout Greece: in Klokotos (Trikala), in Larissa (Thessaly), in Methoni (Messinia, South Peloponnese), in Filotas (Florina), in Andros island (Cyclades) and in Antikythira island. Also included is another high altitude station (at 2340 m) in Neraidorahi site of Helmos mountain in Kalavryta (Achaia).
