CF - Climate and Forecast Standard Names

Vocabulary for climate and forecast parameters


The Climate and Forecast (CF) standard name table specifies the possible values of the standard_name attribute defined by the CF NetCDF standard. The only valid CF standard names are those which appear in the standard name table.

Standard names are maintained by a committee headed by Alison Pammet at BADC. Additions and other updates are discussed on an email list, and archives are available at the web site.
