Dear Paul,

I still had the two equilibrium names marked as ‘under discussion’ because I had changed the syntax from what was originally proposed. Currently I have the names listed as follows:

mole_concentration_of_carbonate_expressed_as_carbon_at_equilibrium_with_pure_calcite_in_sea_water (mol m-3)
‘Mole concentration means number of moles per unit volume, also called "molarity", and is used in the construction "mole_concentration_of_X_in_Y", where X is a material constituent of Y. A chemical or biological species denoted by X may be described by a single term such as "nitrogen" or a phrase such as "nox_expressed_as_nitrogen". The phrase "expressed_as" is used in the construction A_expressed_as_B, where B is a chemical constituent of A. It means that the quantity indicated by the standard name is calculated solely with respect to the B contained in A, neglecting all other chemical constituents of A. The chemical formula of the carbonate anion is CO3 with an electrical charge of minus two. Calcite is a mineral that is a polymorph of calcium carbonate. The chemical formula of calcite is CaCO3. At a given salinity, the thermodynamic equilibrium is that between dissolved carbonate ion and solid calcite. Standard names also exist for aragonite, another polymorph of calcium carbonate.’

mole_concentration_of_carbonate_expressed_as_carbon_at_equilibrium_with_pure_aragonite_in_sea_water (mol m-3)
‘Mole concentration means number of moles per unit volume, also called "molarity", and is used in the construction "mole_concentration_of_X_in_Y", where X is a material constituent of Y.

I take it now that you are happy with these versions, so I will mark them as ‘accepted’. They will be published in the next update of the standard name table, scheduled for May 22nd.

I will send a separate posting shortly regarding the physics names.

Best wishes,
Alison

Folks, after a little more digging the biogeochemical names are finalized:

http://cfeditor.ceda.ac.uk/proposal/1362 ; mole_concentration_of_carbonate_expressed_as_carbon_at_equilibrium_with_pure_calcite_in_sea_water
http://cfeditor.ceda.ac.uk/proposal/1363 ; mole_concentration_of_carbonate_expressed_as_carbon_at_equilibrium_with_pure_aragonite_in_sea_water

My remaining queries are just the physics names included below.

Cheers,

P

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.
