It’s always a nice present for any academic when a paper finally appears “in print”. After some months in public review, our paper introducing a formal data model for the Climate Forecast (CF) conventions (Hassell, Gregory, Blower, Lawrence, & Taylor, 2017) has appeared in Geoscientific Model Development. Although CF was developed for content stored in NetCDF files, this data model has been developed in such a way that the logic can be used for CF content stored in other formats.
