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 of three CTMs within the Global and regional Earth-system (Atmosphere) Monitoring using Satellite and in-situ data [http://www.ecmwf.int/research/EU_projects/GEMS/index.jsp GEMS] project within the theme Global Reactive Gases (GRG). In addition, most of these names probably will be needed within the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution [http://www.htap.org/ TF HTAP].
see also our [http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Talk:CF_Standard_Names_-_Proposed_Atmospheric_Chemistry_and_Aerosol_Terms  discussion]
 
  
 +
The proposed standard_names listed below are based on the ideas provided at [[CF Standard Names - Future Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosol Terms|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 this page.
  
Table 1 provides the name-components and terms to be used in constructing CF names for Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosol purposes.
+
----
  
Table 2 adds a list of chemical and aerosol species to be used together with the name components given in table 1.

are highly welcome!
  
Table 3 provides a list of most often used standard names, constructed solely from name components and species already mentioned
+
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 [[User:ChristianeTextor|ChristianeTextor]].
in tables 1 and 2.
 
  
The ideas in these table are based on work in the PRISM project (Peter van Velthoven) see [http://proj.prism.enes.org/Results/Documents/WPs/WP4a/PRISM_standard_name_tables.html PRISM Standard Name Tables], latest Version, V 1.3

| Height="25,5" | mole_fraction_of_hydroperoxy_radical_in_air
* all forcing variables are still missing

| volume mixing ratio of the hydroperoxy radical, HO2
* always provide also in_air = atmosphere (as opposed to ocean,soil) info in names?
+
| 1=mole mole-1
* how to distinguish ion - radicals, e.g. NO3 ?
 
 
 
Remarks:
 
* articles and prepositions should be avoided
 
* try to use SI units (e.g. not hours but seconds)

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 [http://aqm.jrc.it/HTAP/ model intercomparison] within the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution [http://www.htap.org/ TF HTAP].

THIS PAGE IS CURRENTLY NOT UPDATED, IT CONTAINS OUTDATED INFORMATION, PLEASE GO TO

Christiane Textor, July 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 of three CTMs within the Global and regional Earth-system (Atmosphere) Monitoring using Satellite and in-situ data GEMS project within the theme Global Reactive Gases (GRG). In addition, most of these names probably will be needed within the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution TF HTAP.

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 this page.


Comments to ChristianeTextor or directly on our 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.

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.
