Variable: Precipitation intensity at surface (solid)

Definition
Full name Precipitation intensity at surface (solid)
Definition Intensity of solid precipitation reaching the ground - Physical unit: [ mm/h ] (mm of liquid water after melting)
Measuring Units mm/h Uncertainty Units mm/h
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units
Stability Units mm/h (Stability /decade)

 

Comment: Needed as a complement to "Precipitation intensity (liquid or solid)" in order to distinguish liquid and solid precipitation.
