Parameter surface_​upward_​heat_​flux_​in_​air


Properties of the parameter surface_​upward_​heat_​flux_​in_​air
Name surface_upward_heat_flux_in_air
Description The surface called "surface" means the lower boundary of the atmosphere. "Upward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed upward (negative downward). The vertical heat flux in air is the sum of all heat fluxes i.e. radiative, latent and sensible. In accordance with common usage in geophysical disciplines, "flux" implies per unit area, called "flux density" in physics.
