Meteorological Tower in a Norway Spruce stand (F1)

Below you can see a picture of one of our meteorological towers. This one is located in the Solling Mountains in Central Germany. The Norway spruces are about 30m tall, the tower tops them by another 22m to a overall height of 52m. On days with good weather conditions the tower offers an excellent view in addition to its scientific purpose.

This is the tower seen from nearby and from the bottom.
