Parameter upwelling_​shortwave_​radiance_​in_​air

Properties

Properties of the parameter upwelling_​shortwave_​radiance_​in_​air
Name upwelling_shortwave_radiance_in_air
Description "shortwave" means shortwave radiation. Upwelling radiation is radiation from below. It does not mean "net upward". Radiance is the radiative flux in a particular direction, per unit of solid angle. The direction towards which it is going must be specified, for instance with a coordinate of zenith_angle. If the radiation does not depend on direction, a standard name of isotropic radiance should be chosen instead.
AMIP code (Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) not specified
GRIB code not specified

Source

The parameter was taken from the NetCDF CF Metadata Convention.
