Joint Ecosystem Modeling

CERP NetCDF Standard

The CERP NetCDF standard is an effort by the Joint Ecosystem Modeling (JEM) community to define a data standard to facilitate data sharing among the scientists in the Everglades area. The standard is derived from the NetCDF Climate and Forecast (CF) conventions.

To ease the complexity of working with a new file format, a Java library was written to aid in the creation and usage of files following the CERP NetCDF standard. In addition to promoting data interoperability, the CERP NetCDF standard will also allow leveraging of the freely available JEM suite of tools (EverVIEW) for viewing, charting, etc.
