    33Types, or Constructs (the terms are used interchangeably here) are the data model constituents.  An implementation may take these and instansiate particular Classes, Variables or similar to express the concept in the relevant way for that implementation.

    7 A candidate type should have:

    14  * This listing is structured using the explicit variable types in the CF Conventions for NetCDF Files, version 1.5. 
    15  * Under each generic variable heading in the convention, a list of options for data model types which meet the requirements for the convention are provided. 
    16  * The objective is a coherent list of types for the CF Data Model.

     13 * The scope of the data model is to define the concepts of CF and the relationships that exist between these concepts.
     14 * The data model provides a logical, implementation neutral, abstraction of the concepts defined by CF.
     15 * The data model does not define the interface to CF.
