Radiation and heat flux maps
For more explanations about solar radiation and latent and sensible flux, please have a look at the specific page concerning the radiation.
The radiation maps are all available at 3h steps.
The solar radiation map shows the incoming shortwave radiation in W/m².
It represents the incoming solar radiation, and that is why it is mainly equal to zero during the night (no sun). This map gives also an indication on the cloud coverage.
Latent heat flux
The latent heat changes the phase of a substance.
The map shows the latent heat flux in W/m² with the help of a colour scale, combined with streamlines at 10 m above ground.
Sensible heat flux
The sensible heat changes the temperature of a substance.
The map shows the sensible heat flux in W/m² with the help of a colour scale, combined with streamlines at 10 m above ground.
