Air Humidity and moisture maps

Humidity maps can be combined with sea level pressure, wind animation and the graticule by activating the different options in the lower right corner, with one click.

Relative humidity

Relative humidity

These maps show the relative humidity in percent (%) with the help of a colour scale. Relative humidity can be displayed in different altitudes. The preferred altitude can be selected from the drop-down list in the menu on the right.
More: see relative humidity.

Dewpoint temperature

Dewpoint temperature

These maps show the dewpoint temperature in degrees Celsius (°C). The colours are based on the normal temperature palette and are described in the colour bar.

Vapor pressure deficit

Vapor pressure deficit

These maps show the vapor pressure deficit. Vapor pressure deficit (VPD) corresponds to the difference between the amount of moisture in the air and how much moisture the air can still absorb at a certain temperature until it is saturated. It is expressed as a pressure difference in hPa.

Evapotranspiration

Evapotranspiration

These maps show the evapotranspiration with colours as specified in the map's legend. The evapotranspiration is the sum of evaporation (soils, lakes, seas) and transpiration (plants). It assumes a non irrigated surface, thus only the naturally available water. Evapotranspiration is expressed in millimetres (mm). This value is an aggregation of conditions over larger areas, and can not represent the specific conditions in a place, forest or field. It can be used to make regional comparisons and see gradients.

Potential evapotranspiration

Potential evapotranspiration

These maps show the potential evapotranspiration with colours as specified in the map's legend. Potential evapotranspiration is a theoretical value and explains how much water would evaporate from a water surface. It is expressed in millimetres (mm). This value is an aggregation of conditions over larger areas, and can not represent the specific conditions in a place, forest or field. It can be used to make regional comparisons and see gradients.

Soil moisture

Soil moisture (0-10 cm)

Soil moisture maps show the mean moisture of the top soil in the area for specific depth range (e.g. 0-10 cm), indicated as m3/m3 and visualised with colours as shown in the colour bar. This value is an aggregation of soil conditions over larger areas, and can not represent the specific conditions in a place, forest or field. It can be used to make regional comparisons and see gradients.
