English term or phrase:up-slope/down-slope
Es geht ums Segelfliegen im Gebirge:
Speed variations from ***up-slope to down-slope*** can be very easily detected when circling some distance from a long slope.
If you are constantly having to stretch the circle in the direction of the ***up-slope*** to stay in lift, check that you are not losing speed when facing ***up-slope***, gaining it when facing ***down-slope*** and so moving away from the thermal. [...] The wind against the slope will shift your circle.
Was heißt in diesem Zusammenhang "slope", "up-slope" und "down-slope"???
