Parameter surface_​upwelling_​spectral_​radiative_​flux_​in_​sea_​water


Properties of the parameter surface_​upwelling_​spectral_​radiative_​flux_​in_​sea_​water
Name surface_upwelling_spectral_radiative_flux_in_sea_water
Description The surface called "surface" means the lower boundary of the atmosphere. "Water" means water in all phases, including frozen i.e. ice and snow. Upwelling radiation is radiation from below. It does not mean "net upward". "spectral" means per unit wavelength or as a function of wavelength; spectral quantities are sometimes called "monochromatic". Radiation wavelength has standard name radiation_wavelength. When thought of as being incident on a surface, a radiative flux is sometimes called "irradiance". In addition, it is identical with the quantity measured by a cosine-collector light-meter and sometimes called "vector irradiance". In accordance with common usage in geophysical disciplines, "flux" implies per unit area, called "flux density" in physics.
