Description
The Monitoring Network Flemish Banks (Meetnet Vlaamse Banken) was set up for the acquisition of real-time oceanographic and meteorological data along the Belgian coast and on the Belgian continental shelf. It is a sensor network measuring waves, tidal height, current and water temperature; meteorological parameters are wind, air pressure, air temperature and rainfall. Data for use in academic research can be obtainded after registering to the MVB system . Data for commercial use or other should be requested kust@vlaanderen.be.
