Dear CF,

I have been tasked by my organization to come up with a standard for disseminating uncertainty in netCDF files. CF does not currently have an uncertainty standard and other community attempts have not been adopted by the community. I am proposing a new standard that will hopefully be adopted and integrated into the CF standard. I've attached a PDF of the standard, and here is a link to a Google Doc <> with comment permissions. Please feel free to add comments and suggestions to the Google doc.
