"toa" means top of atmosphere. "Photon solar irradiance" is the photon flux on a surface perpendicular to the incoming solar radiation. The direction is specified as "incoming". A photon flux is specified in terms of numbers of photons expressed in moles. The "per unit wavelength" indicates a spectrally resolved quantity. A coordinate variable for radiation wavelength should be given the standard name radiation_wavelength.
