#171 new enhancement

Reference UGRID and SGRID conventions in CF

Description (last modified by rsignell)

The UGRID (unstructured grid) and SGRID (staggered grid) conventions extend CF, but have been developed separately from CF, each with separate documentation, revision control and governance.

We would like to strengthen the connections between these conventions by bringing UGRID and SGRID into CF. We would follow the CF governance rules for making changes to UGRID and SGRID, and reference specific versions of UGRID and SGRID when releasing new versions of CF.

So Conventions='CF-1.8' might mean that UGRID-1.0 and SGRID-0.3 also apply.

Dear Rich

Thanks for making this proposal. I think that linking UGRID and SGRID with CF in this way will benefit both of them by ensuring they remain consistent and complementary. I support the principle. Please could you set out the text changes you would propose to CF 1.7? I suggest that we should give references (as URLs) to the relevant versions of UGRID and SGRID in the CF standard document.

Best wishes

Jonathan
