This proposal received only one comment - to query the definition of inland water. We have had longstanding discussions about sea/water bodies, etc., which have not been fully resolved.

Term: inland_water_area_fraction
Unit: 1
Unit ref: UUUU
"X_area_fraction" means the fraction of horizontal area occupied by X. "X_area" means the horizontal area occupied by X within the grid cell. "inland_water" is water surrounded by land-masses like rivers and lakes, and is all water-surfaces which are not "sea".
