Parameter integral_​of_​surface_​downward_​latent_​heat_​flux_​wrt_​time


Properties of the parameter integral_​of_​surface_​downward_​latent_​heat_​flux_​wrt_​time
Name integral_of_surface_downward_latent_heat_flux_wrt_time
Description "integral_of_Y_wrt_X" means int Y dX. The data variable should have an axis for X specifying the limits of the integral as bounds. "wrt" means with respect to. The surface called "surface" means the lower boundary of the atmosphere. "Downward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed downward (negative upward). The surface latent heat flux is the exchange of heat between the surface and the air on account of evaporation (including sublimation). In accordance with common usage in geophysical disciplines, "flux" implies per unit area, called "flux density" in physics.
