BackForward Variable: Ocean suspended sediments concentration

Definition
Full name Ocean suspended sediments concentration
Definition Variable extracted from ocean colour observation. Indicative of river outflow, re-suspension or pollution of other-than-biological origin. Uncertainty expressed in g/m3 at a specific concentration (e.g., 2 g/m3 ).
Measuring Units g/m3 Uncertainty Units g/m3
Horizontal Res Units km Vertical Res Units
Stability Units g/m3 (Stability /decade)
