Particle systems have a number of properties that they can access, such as their alpha, position, color, etc. Some of these are Scalars, which are a single number. Some are vectors, which is a group of three numbers.

Particle Scalar Fields refer to all memory types which are Scalars, having a single number.

These include :

Life Duration
Roll Speed

Not all of these are user editable, such as Particle ID.
