[CF-metadata] high sample rate (seismic) data conventions

Hi all,

I’m curious about the suitability of CF metadata conventions for seismic sensor data.  I’ve done a bit of searching, but can’t find any mention of how CF conventions would store high sample-rate data sensor data.  I do see descriptions of time series conventions, where hourly or daily sensor data samples are stored along with their timestamps, but storing individual timestamps for each sample of a high sample rate sensor would unnecessarily double the storage.  Seismic formats typically don’t store time vectors, but instead just store vectors of samples with an associated start time and sampling rate.

Could someone please point me towards a discussion or existing conventions on this topic?  Any help or suggestion is appreciated.
