Description (last modified by arango)

Added the standard_name attribute to the eastward and northward, rotated, velocity components at RHO-point. Recall that these components can be computed only at the interior RHO-points and set to zero at the boundaries.

                ubar_eastward:long_name = "eastward vertically integrated momentum component at RHO-points" ;

This facilitates the plotting vectors with third-party software like ncWMS, NcML, etc. Many thanks to Rich Signell and Francisco López for bringing this to my attention.
