Does anyone know how I can get the direct and the diffuse components
of the downward shortwave radiation from WRF?
There are several radiation variables and their meaning is not clear
GSW - net short wave flux at ground surface
SWDOWN - downward short-wave flux at ground surface
SWDOWNC - downward clear-sky short-wave flux at ground surface
I would be grateful if someone could enlighten me about the meanings
of these three variables.
Thank you in advance.
