The phrase "to_direction" is used in the construction X_to_direction and indicates the direction towards which the vector X is headed. The direction is a bearing in the usual geographical sense, measured positive clockwise from due north. Wave slope describes an aspect of sea surface wave geometry related to sea surface roughness. Mean square slope describes a derivation over multiple waves within a sea-state, for example calculated from moments of the wave directional spectrum.

Wave slope describes an aspect of sea surface wave geometry related to sea surface roughness. Mean square slope describes a derivation over multiple waves within a sea-state, for example calculated from moments of the wave directional spectrum. The phrase "upwave_slope_direction" is used to assign a primary directional axis along which wave energy associated with the slope calculation is travelling; "upwave" is equivalent to "from_direction" which is used in some standard names.
