[[CF Standard Names - Proposed names for TF HTAP|HTAP Proposed Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosol Names]]
 
 
 
 
 
The standard_names listed on this page are used within [http://aqm.jrc.it/HTAP/ model intercomparison] within the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution [http://www.htap.org/ TF HTAP]. However, as the simulations already started before the names have been officially approved by CF, some minor changes will be necessary.

Return to Start page for Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosol Names PLEASE DO NOT USE THE NAVIGATION BAR ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE!


The CF conventions web site contains a List of accepted CF Standard Names, choose Atmospheric Chemistry as a Category.

The list of standard names for aerosol ad chemicals accepted by October 29 2008 can be found here.

This table gives a list of variables that have been accepted by the CF community CF mailing list.

New names can be submitted to this list and are discussed by the CF community on this mailing list.
