Since 1976 hydrographic and meteorological properties have been measured continuously on the offshore platforms in the Danish sector of the North Sea. The location of the platforms is approximately 200 km West of the Danish harbour Esbjerg. In the period 1976-1981 wave measurements were obtained at the Dan Field. From 1981 and on going meteorological data and hydrographic data have been measured continuously at the Gorm Field. From 1984 and onwards: meteorological data from Tyra Field. From 1998 and onwards: hydrographic data from Tyra Field. From 1996 and onwards: meteorological data from Harald Field The data are stored as processed statistical data and raw data in a database.
