Properties

Properties of the parameter tendency_​of_​wind_​speed_​due_​to_​gravity_​wave_​drag
Name tendency_of_wind_speed_due_to_gravity_wave_drag
Description The specification of a physical process by the phrase due_to_process means that the quantity named is a single term in a sum of terms which together compose the general quantity named by omitting the phrase. "tendency_of_X" means derivative of X with respect to time. Speed is the magnitude of velocity. Wind is defined as a two-dimensional (horizontal) air velocity vector, with no vertical component. (Vertical motion in the atmosphere has the standard name upward_air_velocity.) The wind speed is the magnitude of the wind velocity.
