Swiss Tower 2000
Until the winter 2002-2003 the "Swiss Tower" rose to a height of 50m above the snow level at the ETH Zürich research site. Instruments were being placed along the tower to provide continuous, high-density measurements of temperature, pressure and wind speed. The data aided in understanding the energy flux at the surface.
