Volume fraction" is used in the construction volume_fraction_of_X_in_Y, where X is a material constituent of Y. Typically a NTIME x NCELLS x NLAYERS x NFRAC array containing the volume fraction per sediment fraction per layer per time step stored (unit 1). The dimension representing the number of sediment fractions NFRAC may include multiple model dependent gravel, sand, silt, clay fractions, so we need to generalize beyond the scope of the currently existing standard names of volume_fraction_of_clay/sand/silt_in_soil.
