In French the similar word most often used is "Pétole", for "No wind at all". PhilPeter_Frank wrote:Curious what word is used when the water is totally mirror flat because there is no wind (at the surface) ?
In German the similar word most often used is "Flaute", for "No wind at all".
So you don't mean water like this? Which I would call 'a mill pond' or 'mirror flat'Peter_Frank wrote:Hmmm, sorry if explained myself badly....
The term I look for in English and other langauges, if it exists, is a word or expression meaning the wind is so low - interpreted as NO wind, so the water is glassy
NOT whether the water surface is flat, as it can be behind islands or reefs or narrow tongues of land or small ponds, even if not zero wind
