Parameter lwe_​thickness_​of_​frozen_​water_​content_​of_​soil_​layer

Properties

Properties of the parameter lwe_​thickness_​of_​frozen_​water_​content_​of_​soil_​layer
Name lwe_thickness_of_frozen_water_content_of_soil_layer
Description "frozen_water" means ice. "lwe" means liquid water equivalent. The construction lwe_thickness_of_X_amount or _content means the vertical extent of a layer of liquid water having the same mass per unit area. "Content" indicates a quantity per unit area. "Layer" means any layer with upper and lower boundaries that have constant values in some vertical coordinate. There must be a vertical coordinate variable indicating the extent of the layer(s). If the layers are model layers, the vertical coordinate can be model_level_number, but it is recommended to specify a physical coordinate (in a scalar or auxiliary coordinate variable) as well. Quantities defined for a soil layer must have a vertical coordinate variable with boundaries indicating the extent of the layer(s).
