Properties

Properties of the parameter net_​downward_​shortwave_​flux_​in_​air_​assuming_​clear_​sky
Name net_downward_shortwave_flux_in_air_assuming_clear_sky
Description A phrase assuming_condition indicates that the named quantity is the value which would obtain if all aspects of the system were unaltered except for the assumption of the circumstances specified by the condition. "shortwave" means shortwave radiation. "Downward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed downward (negative upward).
