Abstract:

This document presents a data dictionary for oceanographic netCDF data files. Commonly used words are abbreviated. Abbreviations are then combined to make sentence-like variable names that describe the contents of the variable. The goal is to facilitate netCDF file use by making the CDF form of the data self-documenting.
