Which parameter codes are used in NEMO?

Two parameter lists are available in NEMO : P09 (MEDATLAS Parameter Usage Vocabulary) and P01 (BODC Parameter Usage Vocabulary), the parameter list is chosen on the Data screen.

If the output format is MEDATLAS: only P09 is available, the mapping with P01 will be done automatically at the conversion stage.

If the output format is ODV: both lists P01 and P09 are available:

  • If you choose P09, the mapping with P01 will be done automatically at the conversion stage.
  • If you choose P01, you can access it through P09 or through P02 (depending in which list you are more familiar).
    • example, you need to finf the P01 code for Chlorophyll total per unit of volume
      • Through P09, elect CPHL and then CHLTVOLU in P01
      • Through P02, select CPWC and then CHLTVOLU in P01

If the output format is NetCDF: only P01 is available:

you can access it through P09 or through P02 (depending in which list you are more familiar).

  • example, you need to finf the P01 code for Chlorophyll total per unit of volume
    • Through P09, elect CPHL and then CHLTVOLU in P01
    • Through P02, select CPWC and then CHLTVOLU in P01
