Conductance for moisture

From Glossary of Meteorology



conductance for moisture

The product of bulk transfer coefficient ME for moisture and wind speed U.

This product acts like an electrical conductance because when used in a bulk transfer law, FE = CEMΔr, the flux (current) is proportional to the conductivity (CEM) times the potential difference (voltage).
Compare eddy conductivity, conductivity, bulk transfer coefficient.
