ready Climate and Forecast metadata conventions

Abbreviation: CF metadata convention


General Information
Climate and Forecast metadata conventions define metadata that provide a definitive description of what the data in each variable represents, and the spatial and temporal properties of the data. This enables users of data from different sources to decide which quantities are comparable, and facilitates building applications with powerful extraction, regridding, and display capabilities. The CF conventions generalise and extend the COARDS conventions
