Hi Alison et al.,

I’m curious as to what the status of the two-remaining generic/3D biogeochemical names that will be replacing the originally proposed surface quantities:

surface_mole_concentration_of_carbonate_expressed_as_carbon_for_sea_water_in_equilibrium_with_pure_calcite, mol m-3, (Omon, 57) ; http://cfeditor.ceda.ac.uk/proposal/1422 ; Rejected
surface_mole_concentration_of_carbonate_expressed_as_carbon_for_sea_water_in_equilibrium_with_pure_aragonite, mol m-3, (Omon, 58) ; http://cfeditor.ceda.ac.uk/proposal/1423 ; Rejected

Did we have a generic 3D variable that we can use instead?


Upon reviewing the ocean physics sheet, I’ve also found additional standard names that are yet to appear. They are not included in version 43, and if no URL is listed below, this requires proposing to the list, or in the case where similar entries exist, clarifying which is correct and accepting this. These names include:

square_of_sea_surface_salinity (Oday, G5; Omon, G26; to be proposed)
sea_water_salinity_at_sea_floor (Omon, G24) ; http://cfeditor.ceda.ac.uk/proposal/1179

These are the last of the very large OMIP (and FAFMIP) names under discussion. It would be great to get these finalized to complete the ocean variable name request.
