102,Request for two additional cell_methods,rhorne@…,davidhassell,"The GOES-R ground system generates products that conmtains two statistics that are not defined in the current set of cell methods in the CF standard. The two statistics are:
(1) root_mean_square
(2) total_sum_of_squares
This trac item requests that these two statistics be added to the set of CF defined cell_methods. The changes to the CF standard required to support this are as follows...
In CF standard paragraph 7.3. Cell Methods, change this sentence:
The values of method should be selected from the list in Appendix E, Cell Methods, which includes point, sum, mean, maximum, minimum, mid_range, standard_deviation,
variance, mode, and median.
To:
The values of method should be selected from the list in Appendix E, Cell Methods, which includes point, sum, mean, maximum, minimum, mid_range, standard_deviation,
variance, mode, median, root_mean_square, and total_sum_of_squares.
In CF standard Appendix E Cell Methods, add the following two rows to Table E.1 Cell Methods:
