Variable: Aerosol mass mixing ratio

Definition
Full name Aerosol mass mixing ratio
Definition 3D field of the mass mixing ratio of condensed particles in the atmosphere
Measuring Units g/Kg Uncertainty Units %
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units km
Stability Units % (Stability /decade)

 

Comment: Details the former variable "Aerosol " that was making no distinction among concentration, type and size. May be specified as a size-dependent quantity.
