Variable: Atmospheric temperature

Definition
Full name Atmospheric temperature
Definition 3D field of the atmospheric temperature
Measuring Units K Uncertainty Units K
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units km
Stability Units K (Stability /decade)

 

Comment: Necessary to derive atmospheric stability index, in combination with Specific Humidity, in Low Troposphere (LT). Also used for atmosphere-ionosphere coupled models.
