I want to estimate the total burden of a parameter, so I wondered which output variables I need to compute the heights of the vertical levels in meters and the air density.
I currently have output for dpres which refers to the pressure difference between level k and k+1 and also pressure at the surface (SLP). I wondered if it is feasible to estimate atmospheric pressure at a given vertical level from these two variables. Basically, I would like to know if dpres is not a staggered variable?
Regarding the heights of the vertical levels, I currently have in the output delz, which refers to model level gh thickness, but negative values, and dzdt, which is vertical motion in (m/s).
Thank you for your help,
