Pressure Adjusted to Sea Level | Surface Pressure | Surface Pressure Mean | Pressure at Higher Altitudes | Air Density

Atmospheric Pressure and Density API Parameters

The computation of pressure parameters is based on data of NASA's SRTM digital elevation model, where it is available (between 60°N and 60°S). Model topography is used elsewhere.

Pressure Adjusted to Sea Level

Gives the pressure adjusted to sea level.
msl_pressure:<unit>

Available units: hPa, Pa, psi

Examples

Surface Pressure

Gives the surface pressure.
sfc_pressure:<unit>

Available units: hPa, Pa, psi

Examples

Surface Pressure Mean

Gives the surface pressure mean over the given interval.
sfc_pressure_mean_<interval>:<unit>

Available intervals: 1h - 24h (spacing: 1 h)

Available units: hPa, Pa, psi

Examples

Pressure at Higher Altitudes

The atmospheric pressure is available at any height level above ground up to 10 km.
pressure_<level>:<unit>

Available altitude levels: 1m - 20000m (continuously)

The level can be combined with the mean over a time interval.
pressure_mean_<level>_<interval>:<unit>

Available intervals: 1h - 24h (spacing: 1 h)

Available units: hPa, Pa, psi

Atmospheric Density

The density of air at any height level above ground up to 10 km.
air_density_<level>:<unit>

Available altitude levels: 2m - 20000m (continuously)

Available units: kgm3

air_density_mean_<level>_<time>:<unit>

Available intervals: 1h - 24h (spacing: 1 h)

Available units: kgm3
