Version 9: 02.05.2007

It is the philosophy of CF only define those standard_names for which a demand has been expressed. The proposed standard_names on this page are needed for a model intercomparison within the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution TF HTAP.

Goto the the list of HTAP Accepted Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosol Names

The proposed standard_names listed below are based on the ideas provided at Construction of Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosol Terms and Future Standard_Names. They are constructed from name components and species mentioned in tables 1 and 2 of that page.


Comments to ChristianeTextor or directly on the discussion page are highly welcome!

You can directly modify the tables here, all versions are stored under 'history'. However, in order to keep track of the changes, please send an email to ChristianeTextor.


TABLE VERSION 4

CF Standard_name Canonical unit Explanation
optical thickness
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_pm10_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_pm2p5_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_pm1_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_nitrate_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_sulfate_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_ammonium_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_black_carbon_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_seasalt_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_dust_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength


atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_particulate_organic_matter_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
atmosphere_optical_thickness_due_to_water_in_ambient_aerosol 1 The wavelength should be given as as scalar coordinate variables using the standard name radiation_wavelength
others
cell_area m2 model grid cell area
cell_thickness m model grid cell height
HTAP experiments with tagged CO
The tag will be given by a standard_name like 'tracer_tag' or 'tracer_mark' that contains a non-standardized string. This tag will be a coordinate variable.
