Description

Dear all,

since the WMO Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) programme is moving towards using CF standard names as standard vocabulary, I'd like to propose the following standard names that represent aerosol properties being observed at the GAW surface sites:

1) volume_scattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dry_aerosol

The volume scattering coefficient is the fractional change of radiative flux per unit path length due to redirection of an incident light beam by a component in the reference volume. "Aerosol" means the suspended liquid or solid particles in air (except cloud droplets). "Dry aerosol" is aerosol at a relative humidity < 40% where it hasn't taken up ambient water by hygroscopic growth. The specification of a physical process by the phrase "due_to_" process means that the quantity named is a single term in a sum of terms which together compose the general quantity named by omitting the phrase.

2) volume_absorption_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dry_aerosol

The volume absorption coefficient is the fractional change of radiative flux per unit path length due to absorption of an incident light beam by a component in the reference volume. "Aerosol" means the suspended liquid or solid particles in air (except cloud droplets). "Dry aerosol" is aerosol at a relative humidity < 40% where it hasn't taken up ambient water by hygroscopic growth. The specification of a physical process by the phrase "due_to_" process means that the quantity named is a single term in a sum of terms which together compose the general quantity named by omitting the phrase.

3) volume_hemispheric_backscattering_coefficient_in_air_due_to_dry_aerosol

The volume hemispheric backscattering coefficient is the fractional change of radiative flux per unit path length due to redirection of an incident light beam into the rearward hemisphere relative to the incident beam by a component in the reference volume. It is distinct from the backscattering coefficient which isn't integrated over the rearward hemisphere. "Aerosol" means the suspended liquid or solid particles in air (except cloud droplets). "Dry aerosol" is aerosol at a relative humidity < 40% where it hasn't taken up ambient water by hygroscopic growth. The specification of a physical process by the phrase "due_to_" process means that the quantity named is a single term in a sum of terms which together compose the general quantity named by omitting the phrase.

4) surface_volume_scattering_coefficient_at_stp_in_air_due_to_pm1_dry_aerosol

The volume scattering coefficient is the fractional change of radiative flux per unit path length due to redirection of an incident light beam by a component in the reference volume.
