Revision as of 11:41, December 20, 2006

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


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

Version 1: 20.012.2006

These standard_names on this page are used within model intercomparison within the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution TF HTAP. However, as the simulations already started before the names have been officially approved by CF, some minor changes will be necessary.


TABLE VERSION 1
