Precipitation units

Post by Howard » Wed Sep 03, 2014 2:50 am

I am a little confused over units for precipitation

apcpsfc = total accumulated rainfall over the run .. [kg/ m^2] = mm

apcpaccsfc = total accumulated rain between time step [km m-2] what is this ... it appears to be
= mm/10
.............
Confused ... so would appreciate comment from less confused member of forum

regards Howard
