Parameter stratiform_​cloud_​area_​fraction_​in_​atmosphere_​layer

Properties

Properties of the parameter stratiform_​cloud_​area_​fraction_​in_​atmosphere_​layer
Name stratiform_cloud_area_fraction_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. "X_area_fraction" means the fraction of horizontal area occupied by X. "X_area" means the horizontal area occupied by X within the grid cell. Cloud area fraction is also called "cloud amount" and "cloud cover". In an atmosphere model, stratiform cloud is that produced by large-scale convergence (not the convection schemes).
