AERODYNAMIC CONDUCTANCE

Other Names

None

Definition

The surface aerodynamic conductance represents the intensity of the near-surface vertical turbulence that transports heat and moisture between the land-surface and the overlying atmosphere. In NLDAS, it is Aerodynamic Conductance to vapor transport, averaged over all vegetation types within the grid.
