CMIP6 - OMIP

Change Date: March 20, 2016, 7 p.m.

Term: **integral_wrt_depth_of_product_of_sea_water_density_and_potential_temperature**

Unit: kg Celsius m-2

Unit ref:

AMIP:

GRIB:

Product of grid cell thickness with density and potential temperature, summed over the depth of the ocean column. For Boussinesq models, density is constant Boussinesq reference density (reference_sea_water_density_for_boussinesq_approximation).

GRIB:

Product of grid cell thickness with density and potential temperature, summed over the depth of the ocean column. For Boussinesq models, density is constant Boussinesq reference density (reference_sea_water_density_for_boussinesq_approximation).
The phrase "product_of_X_and_Y" means X*Y. Sea water density is the in-situ density (not the potential density). Potential temperature is the temperature a parcel of air or sea water would have if moved adiabatically to sea level pressure. The phrase "wrt" means "with respect to". Depth is the vertical distance below the surface.

GRIB:

The phrase "integral_of_Y_wrt_X" means int Y dX. The data variable should have an axis for X specifying the limits of the integral as bounds. The phrase "product_of_X_and_Y" means X*Y. The phrase "wrt" means "with respect to". Depth is the vertical distance below the surface. Sea water density is the in-situ density (not the potential density). [For Boussinesq models, density is constant Boussinesq reference density (reference_sea_water_density_for_boussinesq_approximation).] Potential temperature is the temperature a parcel of air or sea water would have if moved adiabatically to sea level pressure.

The phrase "integral_wrt_X_of_Y" means int Y dX. The phrase "wrt" means "with respect to". The data variable should have an axis for X specifying the limits of the integral as bounds. The phrase "product_of_X_and_Y" means X*Y. Depth is the vertical distance below the surface. Sea water density is the in-situ density (not the potential density). For Boussinesq models, density is the constant Boussinesq reference density, a quantity which has the standard name reference_sea_water_density_for_boussinesq_approximation. Potential temperature is the temperature a parcel of air or sea water would have if moved adiabatically to sea level pressure.
