Abstract

The present invention is directed to a wind turbine (1) configured to be disposed in or above a sea floor (S) and comprising a tower (2) configured to protrude from a sea level (S), a nacelle (3) and a hub (4). The wind turbine (1) further comprises a transmitter (10) configured to transmit a first electromagnetic wave (100) to be reflected on the sea level (S) and a receiver (20) configured to receive the reflected electromagnetic wave (200), wherein at least one of the transmitter (10) and the receiver (20) is arranged either at the nacelle (3), the hub (4) or the tower (2). The wind turbine further comprises a processing unit (30) being in communication withthe receiver (20) and configured to analyse the reflected electromagnetic wave (200) such that a wave characteristic of the sea level (S) is determined.
