Parameter northward_​momentum_​flux_​correction


Properties of the parameter northward_​momentum_​flux_​correction
Name northward_momentum_flux_correction
Description "Northward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed northward (negative southward). Momentum flux is dimensionally equivalent to stress and pressure. It is a tensor quantity. Flux correction is also called "flux adjustment". A positive flux correction is downward i.e. added to the ocean. In accordance with common usage in geophysical disciplines, "flux" implies per unit area, called "flux density" in physics.
