Short wave radiation

Short wave radiation

These maps show the expected incoming solar short wave radiation with colours as specified in the map legend. Radiation is expressed in Watt per square metre (W/m²). More: see radiation .

Soaring index

Soaring index

These maps show the dimensionless soaring index with colours as indicated in the map's legend. Combining these maps with line plots is also possible. Thus, you can add the K-index and more to the existing map. More: see soaring index .

In-flight icing

In-flight icing

These maps show the expected risk of in-flight icing in percentage (%). It is visualised with colours as specified in the colour bar. More: see in-flight icing .

Boundary layer height

Boundary layer height

These maps show the height of the boundary layer in metres (m) with colours as defined in the colour bar. 

The boundary layer is the lowest part of the troposphere and is defined as the layer in which friction with the Earth's surface influences the air flow. Typically, it is a few hundreds meters to 2 km deep.
