The table is updated according to the discussions in the CF mailing list.

Version 1: 18.08.2006
Version 2: 26.09.2006
Version 3: 05.10.2006
Version 4: 10.10.2006
Version 5: 31.10.2006
Version 6: 21.12.2006

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.
