The cloud optical centriod pressure is a pressure level inside the cloud, near the optical thickness center of the cloud. air_pressure_at_cloud_optical_centroid_assuming_completely_cloudy_sky means a cloud optical centriod pressure assuming the scene is completely cloud covered (the grid cell or satellite footprint). A phrase assuming_condition indicates that the named quantity is the value which would obtain if all aspects of the system were unaltered except for the assumption of the circumstances specified by the condition.
