Yes, that's my understanding.  Cheers, Roy.

Hi all,



Thanks, that's fine.

That is to say that

·         number_content_of_icebergs (m-2) becomes number_of_icebergs_per_unit_area

Is that right?



About the other suggestions, we try to make things so that each entry is a combination of existing CF concepts, except the idea of 'non algal particles' that is now introduced.

·         mass_concentration_of_inorganic_particles_in_sea_water (kg m-3)

·         volume_absorption_coefficient_of_radiative_flux_in_sea_water_due_to_dissolved_organic_matter_and_non_algal_particles (m-1)

·         volume_absorption_coefficient_of_radiative_flux_in_sea_water_due_to_phytoplankton (m-1)

·         volume_backwards_scattering_coefficient_of_radiative_flux_in_sea_water_due_to_particles (m-1)

Comments are welcome,

Cheers,
Olivier.

My preference is also for natural English, so am happy with Jonathan's suggestion.  I was just pointing out, rather than supporting, the consistency issue.



Cheers, Roy.

> I had the same gut reaction as you and almost came up with the same response until I read the definition "Content indicates a quantity per unit area" on 369 Standard Names.  So, perhaps Olivier is being consistent and tha handful of 'per_unit_area" Standard Names are not.



I think Olivier is being consistent, but we have synonymous phrases, and in

this case I feel that such freedom is useful! We can't make standard names

completely systematic, because they also have to be reasonably natural English,

I would say. Jonathan
