Model based weather analysis

Graphical analysis comparing the values of key meteorological parameters and model output variables of the actual year with values of the previous year and with values of the drought year 2003 (dark red).

The parameters are measured by the long-term meteorological station Potsdam Telegraphenberg or simulated using these data by the forest growth model 4C. The model 4C delivers key parameters of the water and carbon budget of a 70-80 years old pine stand on a sandy soil (Cambisol) and a forest fire danger index. Additionally, all presented figures indicate the long-term means 1961-1990 of the parameters.

All figures are updated daily.

The figures of previous years are available from 2007 onwards.

Scheme of parameters:

Mean daily temperature

Mean daily temperature - cumulative annual variability

Precipitation - cumulative annual variability

Soil water annual variability

Water balance - cumulative annual variability

Fire Risk Index - cumulative annual variability

Fire Risk Index - frequency annual variability

Evapotranspiration - cumulative annual variability

Net primary production - cumulative annual variability

Global radiation - cumulative annual variability
