Vasa is slowly deforming and sinking under its own weight about 1 mm per year.With our measuring system we can accurately measure what is happening. We use a total station, an instrument which measures angles and distances to reflective targets on the ship and prisms placed around the building.

Our measurements taken twice a year show us where and how much the hull is deforming.
