Introduction to the effects table

How FIDUCEO codes the effects table

The table below gives a brief summary of how each descriptor in the FIDUCO effects table is codified to produce a NetCDF-compliant standard for coding the effects table in the full-FCDR.

Note that the discussion given in the table below is not intended to be all encompassing, and that further information on this topic can be found in ‘D2_2a Principles of FCDR Effects-Tables’, which has been produced as part of the FIDUCEO project.
