About the Weather

Landsverk has been doing weather measurements since the mid-eighties and wave measurements since the late seventies. The institution offers a variety of measurements that many different groups in society benefit from. The Press collects data directly from the website and relays it to the Faroese people.

Students and researchers can also contact Landsverk with requests about historical data for their studies. Municipalities and the building industry also have interest in our data when it comes to harbours, windmills and when buildings need to be constructed and/or maintained. Now and then Landsverk is asked to set up weather stations in places that need to be determined whether or not it is advisable to build. Today Landsverk has 27 permanent weather stations spread out across the country.
