Parameter potential_​vorticity_​of_​ocean_​layer

Properties

Properties of the parameter potential_​vorticity_​of_​ocean_​layer
Name potential_vorticity_of_ocean_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. Ocean potential vorticity is the vertically averaged absolute vorticity of a layer of the ocean divided by the thickness of the layer.
AMIP code (Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) not specified
