Parameter longitude

Properties

Properties of the parameter longitude
Name longitude
Description Longitude is positive eastward; its units of degree_east (or equivalent) indicate this explicitly. In a latitude-longitude system defined with respect to a rotated North Pole, the standard name of grid_longitude should be used instead of longitude. Grid longitude is positive in the grid-eastward direction, but its units should be plain degree.
AMIP code (Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) longitude
GRIB code not specified
