In the large OMIP biogeochemistry request several carbon_dioxide names were requested. Of these surface_downward_mass_flux_of_carbon_dioxide was rejected, as surface_downward_mole_flux_of_carbon_dioxide already exists.
This relates to variables contained in the Biogeochemistry sheet - https://goo.gl/Fyr6QW
The rejection of this name has led to the situation where requested carbon_dioxide variables have different units:
surface_downward_mole_flux_of_carbon_dioxide, mol m-2 s-1 (Omon, 162)
surface_downward_mass_flux_of_carbon_dioxide_natural_analogue_expressed_as_carbon, kg m-2 s-11 (Omon, 163)
surface_downward_mass_flux_of_carbon_dioxide_abiotic_analogue_expressed_as_carbon, kg m-2 s-11 (Omon, 164)
surface_downward_mass_flux_of_carbon14_dioxide_abiotic_analogue_expressed_as_carbon, kg m-2 s-11 (Omon, 165)
surface_downward_mass_flux_of_carbon13_dioxide_abiotic_analogue_expressed_as_carbon13, kg m-2 s-11 (Omon, 166)
surface_downward_mole_flux_of_molecular_oxygen, mol m-2 s-1 (Omon, 167)
surface_upward_mole_flux_of_dimethyl_sulfide, mol m-2 s-1 (Omon, 168)
I wonder if this can be reconsidered so there is some consistency between the carbon_dioxide standard names and their units.
