36 meteorological stations are located on the facade of the Research Centre building´s from 2016. Weather stations measure basic climate parameters and wind velocity and direction using a powerful ultra-sonic anemometers. These are located on the walls of the building oriented to four cardinal points at different heights and positions on the façade. The location selections were made with use of CFD simulation which analysed flow around the building. Thus they give faithful image of wind flow near the façade of five-storey office building. Such detailed measurements make it possible to achieve high accurate calibration of CFD models and measurements in the wind tunnel. This paper describes these meteorological stations in detail. First outputs from measurement in autumn are published and analysed.
