Parameter northward_​water_​vapor_​transport_​across_​unit_​distance_​in_​atmosphere_​layer

Properties

Properties of the parameter northward_​water_​vapor_​transport_​across_​unit_​distance_​in_​atmosphere_​layer
Name northward_water_vapor_transport_across_unit_distance_in_atmosphere_layer
Description "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. "Northward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed northward (negative southward). Transport across_unit_distance means expressed per unit distance normal to the direction of transport.
AMIP code (Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) not specified
GRIB code not specified
