The Port operates a number of meteorological stations in and around port land.  These stations provide data that is used across a broad range of our monitoring programs and operations (particularly by our pilots during vessel movements), as well as by our port users and the local community.

At a location referred to as Pylon P14, located within the navigational channel in Cleveland Bay, we monitor wind speed and direction to assist with pilotage of vessels to port.

We monitor wind speed and direction as well as rainfall in conjunction with ambient air monitoring at three boundary air stations: Coast Guard, Lennon Drive and Enviro Park.
