BackForward Variable: Aerosol effective radius

Full name Aerosol effective radius
Definition 3D field of mean aerosol particle size, defined as the ratio of the third and second moments of the number size distribution of aerosol particles. Requested in the troposphere (assumed height: 12 km) and as columnar average.
Measuring Units µm Uncertainty Units µm
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units
Stability Units µm (Stability /decade)
