The port of Livorno was the first Italian port to employ a modern Wind Detector named Lidar. This detector allows the measuring of the wind speed on its vertical axis from 40 to 200 meters height and allows also very accurate forecasts.



This tool , developed under the program of cross-border cooperation Italy / France " Maritime" 2007 - 2013 and funded by the European Fund for Regional Development,had been installed for several months in the port called“labronico” at the end of the Fort of the Mouth and subsequently it was integrated with the system of anemometers and weather stations already present in the port area .

The monitoring network installed in the port of Livorno includes seven anemometers , a weather station and a Lidar thanks to which the port
authority of Livorno will collect data relevant to a study in the wind circulation and weather fields.
