Potential Data Model Types

Types, 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.

For each candidate type, a link is provided here.

A candidate type should have:

  • a type name
  • a description

CF Conventions 1.5 Candidate Types

  • This listing is structured using the explicit variable types in the CF Conventions for NetCDF Files, version 1.5.

  • The objective is a coherent list of types for the CF Data Model.
