Available Parameters

Topography & Land Usage

 

Elevation

Gives the elevation in meters above sea level. The horizontal resolution is approximately 90 meters.

elevation:m

Examples

 

Topography Deviation

The deviation in topography of the specified weather model compared to the NASA SRTM measured elevation.

model_topo_deviation:m

Examples

 

Land Usage

Examples

 

Roughness Length

Roughness length of the ground, depending of the land usage. Roughness length is a parameter of some vertical wind profile equations that model the horizontal mean wind speed near the ground; in the log wind profile, it is equivalent to the height at which the wind speed theoretically becomes zero.

roughness_length:m

Examples

 

Shadow

This parameter returns 1 or 0 depending on whether the coordinate is in shadow of the topography at the specified time or not.

is_in_shadow:idx
