On February 13rd, two new weatherstations have been installed by the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus. These fully autmated stations will deliver essential data to better understand the climate of the region.

By means of a helicopter they have been installed at the two extern locations of the station: The 'Schneefernerkopf' and the 'Zugspitzkamm'. This kind of stations are also used by the avalanche warning system and are proved well in high alpine regions. 

They are equipped with solar panels for their power supply and the collected data is transferred via the mobile network.
