CM2.x ocean seaice monthly variable list by table

[NOAA bullet] Table O1b: Monthly-mean 2-d ocean data (latitude, depth, region, time:month)

The variables and output variable names listed in this table are consistent with those of the IPCC/PCMDI archive as outlined in their document titled IPCC Standard Output from Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere GCMs.

1 ocean_meridional_overturning_streamfunction stfmmc computed from ty_trans This includes only the explicitly calculated, purely advective component and excludes contributions of the bolus velocity associated with the Gent-McWilliams parameterization.

2 ocean_meridional_overturning_streamfunction stfmmcgm computed from ty_trans_gm This includes only the contributions of the bolus velocity associated with the Gent-McWilliams parameterization. This variable was not requested in the IPCC/PCMDI list of variables, but is being provided in response to requests from researchers studying the ocean model component.
