SCP-305-DE-A (left) and SCP-305-DE-B (right)

Item #: SCP-305-DE

Object Class: Keter

Threat Level: Red

Special Containment Procedures: Currently, SCP-305-DE-A and SCP-305-DE-B are located in the radius of provisional Outpost-DE/305's containment area in the national park of the Saxon Switzerland's Eastern Ore Mountains. Due to their anomalous properties and them posing a threat to the immediate environment, no isolation via structural architectures and resources is possible. The low-pressure area attracted through the Japanese weather anchor Schröder is to be maintained.
The weather component's intensity and imprint is hereby to be optimally aligned to the natural climate and endemic weather pattern of the area. The absolute limit values, to both keep SCP-305-DE-A and -B largely in their containment area, as well as to not draw public attention onto the project, were set to temperatures below 23 °C, an atmospheric pressure from 950 hPa to a maximum of 995 hPa, and a humidity of not less than 40 %. Precipitation, cloudiness, and wind should be caused by discretion; ideally, the precipitation should at least reach 4 l/m² every week, with the cloudiness a minimum of 2/8 on average1 (Heightened values are desirable.) Trained technical personnel must verify the functionality of the primary apparatus and the back-up's daily. Pumping devices direct the ground and rain water, which reaches corresponding machine houses via artificially constructed trenches and tubes, towards the surface as water vapor, where it begins to repeatedly form clouds and rain. On this occasion, a river serves as the primary water source, the former leading through the containment area. Due to safety reasons, the whole ground is prevented from slipping off via synthetic interception and stabilization devices and several plants in need of water. Using a subterranean mega magnifier system, the Janssen weather anchor Schröder's structure can be reached from Site-DE5. The Site is to be outfitted with 15 employees at all times, of which 6 from the technical team, 4 from the containment expert team, 2 armed members of squadron 2 (yellow) by RTF DE5-𝔎 "The Pals" and the assigned Class-B personnel2

As SCP-305-DE-A and -B can hardly be observed via camera or eye due to their size and location, , the whole affected area and beyond is to be monitored using a sensitive, weather-resistant, area-wide flight radar. In case of one or both subjects move away from the containment room, MTF DE20-𝔒 "Weatherproof" is to be alarmed, with two (2) VFW-H-3 helicopters being send to re-contain the subjects. The utilized procedure of re-containing the subjects consists both of irradiating via high-power heat emitters by helicopters, as well as repelling the instances back in their containment zone.

Via distance and a complete abundance of paths and roads, the area is shielded from the public. Webcrawler "Metero? of course!" ensures revision of weather dates of the area's location by dint of satellites. Consequences caused by a containment breach are to be disguised as effects of climate change; amnestitizing protocols are generally not necessary. The usual frequency of the weather phenomenons evoked is to be disregarded a a natural effect. MTF DE20-𝔒 "Weatherproof" can be consulted for damage control. Anonymous donations from the Foundation to victims must be enabled at the Ethic Committee's behest. Unauthorized persons entering the containment room despite by a alleged wetland biotope are to be immediately apprehended, and, following an interrogation with Class-A amnesica, to be amnestitized and transferred to nature conservation authority.

Additional Remark: Until completion of the subterranean high-capacity containment cell in Site-DE6, which, due to its dimensions, allows for underground functionality of the Janssen-Schröder-Weather Anchor to create a 'natural' weather system, the current containment procedures have to be followed and maintained. Furthermore, the project will be overseen until termination of current security measures through the recent founded eliciting institution of the Bureo for anomalous Weather Research and Observation of Foundation-made Climate Interventions (BaWOFC). Further information can be requested at Containment and Logistical Dispositioning Department.

Description: SCP-305-DE designates two specimens of the Ammonoidea (Ammonites) species, hereby designated as SCP-305-DE-A and SCP-305-DE-B. Except for their size and shell structure, both subjects are anatomically almost identical and seemingly compatible with other conspecifics. The exact inner anatomy of SCP-305-DE specimens is unexplored, yet SCP-305-DE is theorized to not posses a digestive system. Based on newest findings, materiality and texture do not indicate any anomalous properties. The phenotype of SCP-305-DE matches known well-founded models. The calcium carbonate shell is coiled in a logarithmic spiral shape, which tapers from the aperture (opening). The aperture offers the only in-and-out for the entities' soft parts. The head is shielded by a head cap and features a jaw, tongue, and the distinctive buccal tentacles. SCP-305-DE instances keep a passive demeanor towards any other organisms and evade all contact, despite being immune to damage due to their mater immunity. Genotype and inner structure are hitherto unknown.

SCP-305-DE are the aforementioned specimens of Ammonoidea. Their anomalous properties extend, firstly, to a complete immunity and resilience against matter and gravity. SCP-305-DE pass both through solid, liquid and gaseous3 substances, possessing the proficiency to stay and move freely in space. Instances' habit consists of a calm shared vegetation in cloud height and mostly parallel consumption of the low-pressure area, which shows their second anomalous property. SCP-305-DE usually reside in rain and storm areas of the moderate climate zone. SCP-305-DE's distinctive feature is its meteophage being. The existence of this anomalous diet was initially cited in the Foundation-issued work "anomalous diets and their classifications" by biologist Ms. Dr. Benedikta Stör 1995, but was never confirmed nor denied. SCP-305-DE-A and -B consume rain-laden weather systems, generally low-pressure areas and cyclones. The exact process of gathering energy is not entirely understood. This causes the low-pressure area to be dissolved and transformed into a high-pressure area. Increasing temperatures, rising atmospheric pressure, decreasing humidity, calm, potent and intensive sunshine, reduced precipitation formation, but not infrequently also drought and heat waves result as a byproduct of this diet. In the aftermath of such a weather system being completely 'depleted', the subjects move to the next area, with SCP-305-DE-A and -B seemingly possessing a sense for the nearest low-pressure area. The accompanying warming of the atmosphere and intervention into the natural climate can entail severe climate catastrophes, including droughts, heat waves, storm gusts, as well as redirection and creation of heavy thunderstorms, which are designated as an MD-Class anomalogenic weather disaster event.

Discovery: As a heat wave hit Karlsruhe in 2003, multiple reports and footage arose concerning unidentified flying objects above the city. Following interception of the video its publisher could be located.

Reports about unidentified flying objects arose in Stuttgart on the 01/09/2003. Due to their similarity to the Karlsruhe-case, two EC-135 helicopters were dispatched to contain the entities. An NBC alert was called in the city for stealth. However, every attempt of arresting the entities was unsuccessful, as they resisted matter. Subjects fled thereafter. Dissolving the low-pressure area caused severe changes in the local weather system. This was acknowledged by ongoing rainfalls in the neighboring village ████████████, leading to a flash flood 10.000 € in damage and three casualties. MTF-DE20-𝔒 "Weatherproof" was sent for damage control.

On the 30/09/2003, the subjects were subsequently localized. SCP-305-DE-A and -B were driven to Site-DE6 via heat beams and contained in a environmental simulation unit. Despite all expectations, the SCP-305-DEs were unable to feed on emulated weather, which lead to the containment breach from 01/01/2003.

Containment Breach: SCP-305-DE-01

Although our theory that SCP-305-DE can be made compliant through heat radiation came to prove, this is in no way because the entities let themselves be corrupted by it (or similar), but rather due to the entities do not like high heat. However, that artificial weather is a good containment method is hereby denied. Personally, I would not see any difference between rain and weather droplets from above, but OK, who knows the gimmick of the these critters… . Meanwhile, Dipl. met. Schröder and I have constructed a paratechnological apparatus for weather manipulation. Utilization and practical tests are ongoing.
-Dr. Janssen

Janssen-Schröder Weather Anchor

Initially, SCP-305-DE feeds on low-pressure areas according to our knowledge, but we attempted to contain them using water vapor and water in general. Justifiably, you are probably asking yourself now why the weather anchor if it solely creates artificial weather that are to contain SCP objects. The answer is easy: weather is comprised of an intertwined process between the six weather components humidity, temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind, population, and precipitation. And that's the crux of the matter, the key needed by the objects to perform their diet. But now I don't want to delay you with any of this and will now come to the development's interim report.
Following some setbacks, we managed to "create" an artificial low-pressure area with continuing rainfalls and cumulonimbus clouds for the first time; of course in a way that enables it to integrate itself into any given weather systems without attracing attention. Surely, several obligatory configurations with soft- and hardware will still be required to ensure proper functionality of the weather anchor.
-Dipl. met. Schröder

After some tests, Dr. Janssen and I concluded to request authorization to utilize the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor for SCP-305-DE's containment.

Request: Accepted

Request: Voted
Usage of the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor is hereby prohibited by the German ethics committee, as anthropogenically intercepting the climate can lead to catastrophic results.

Request: Compromise Solution
Given the threat level of SCP-305-DE and the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor, following thorough consultation with the faculty, we agreed upon permit the usage under the conditions to limit the climate manipulation to a minimum, and hand associated protocols over to the ethics committee. Additionally, we farther the Bureau for anomalous Weather Research and Observation of Foundation-made Climate Interventions as small-scale division. A group of research personnel shall supervise the compliance of both parties in the future; besides that, this is and will not be the only anomaly related to weather or climate.
-Michal Znanewitz, Ethics Committee

The Janssen-Schröder weather anchor was put into operation on the 05/06/2004. SCP-305-DE-A and SCP-305-DE-B were driven to Outpost-DE/305 via heat beams. The current containment procedure's operability has proven itself so far.

In recent years, we noticed that the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor's efficiency has decreased over time, but we unable to find any technical defects. We fathomed the factors after further observation. The generally increasing atmospheric temperature within the climate change's framework counteracts the influence of the technical system, necessitating a higher need for energy to sustain the ideal conditions of the low-pressure area. Unfortunately, despite all efforts, this cannot be corrected. Not to mention that the availability of water is affected in the process. A way must be found to contain SCP-305-DE more effectively.
- Dipl. met. Schröder

Following long thorough consultation with the containment expert council and Engineering and Technical Service Department, we decided to contain SCP-305-DE has to be contained underground. However, the inability of our climate simulation units to properly contain the objects is public knowledge. As the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor has certainly asserted itself, we will mobilize further financial, personal, and material goods to make said structure suitable for closed-off rooms.

Addendum: Following expansion of the research efforts, a model of the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor could be rendered suitable for indoor spaces. Blueprints for the containment cell were submitted on the 17/12/2021 in course of the building request. Construction of the containment unit was initiated on the 01/02/2022. Due to its minimum dimensions required for the Janssen-Schröder weather anchor's functionality, its build will probably end in 20██. Dimensions needed for the spatial structure are 250 m x 200 m x 60 m.

Status of construction: Ongoing
