SOCIB's Modular Beach Integral Monitoring System (MOBIMS) located at Son Bou beach (Menorca) consists of 1 SIRENA videomonitoring station, 1 Nortek AWAC, 1 Vaisala WXT520 weather station and 6 month beach and sediment survey . The main objective of this platforms is to provide measures on beach shoreline and sediment budget evolution and the related forcings.
Moorings at Son Bou platform: 1 Vaisala WXT520 that measures barometric pressure, air temperature, wind velocity and direction, relative humidity and precipitation. 1 Nortek AWAC that measure current velocity and direction profile and wave height, period and direction.
The Son Bou platform is operating since October 2011 and has the support of the hotel Sol Milanos-Pingüinos.
