Bird densities Jabbeke

Radar Jabbeke
In 2012 a new C-band dual-polarisation Doppler weather radar was installed by RMI in Jabbeke along the west coast of Belgium. Bird densities in Jabekke will generally be lower than the other weather radars in Belgium, since the radar is located off the important flyway between Scandinavia and SW-Europe. On the other hand will easterly winds accumulate bird migration along the coast in both Spring and Autumn.

Available data
In each figure, the upper panel shows the bird density (expressed as the number of birds per cubic kilometer) for different height layers above ground (200 meter height resolution). The bird density color scale is logarithmic, increasing from 0.5-700 birds/km3. Bird speed and direction are plotted as wind barbs (each half flag represents 5 knots, each full flag 10 knots, each pennant (filled triangle) 50 knots; 1 knot = 1.9 km/hour). The lower panel shows the vertically integrated bird density (expressed as the number of birds per square kilometer).
