Parameter isotropic_​spectral_​radiance_​in_​air

Properties

Properties of the parameter isotropic_​spectral_​radiance_​in_​air
Name isotropic_spectral_radiance_in_air
Description "spectral" means per unit wavelength or as a function of wavelength; spectral quantities are sometimes called "monochromatic". Radiation wavelength has standard name radiation_wavelength. Radiance is the radiative flux in a particular direction, per unit of solid angle. If radiation is isotropic, the radiance is independent of direction, so the direction should not be specified. If the radiation is directionally dependent, a standard name of upwelling or downwelling radiance should be chosen instead.
AMIP code (Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) not specified
GRIB code not specified
