Variable descriptions (units, use, description, future CF conventions)

  • CLIO model

NOTA: imax = 65, jmax = 122, kmax = 20

NOTA: nsmax is the number of tracers in the ocean. Can vary between 2 (T,S) and 20 at present.

Old bits to be updated below …

  • Atmosphere
    • atmospheric total moisture content q in meters (of precipitable water)
    • geopotential height gh or geopg is in m²/s² and is a difference with the geopotential mean at 500 hPa. To have the real geopotential height in meters : zg = geopg/9.8 +5500
  • Ocean
  • Land Surface
