Archive specifications

The Archive Design Document (ADD), specifies the CORDEX archive content, including variables and their names, file formats and names, data format, meta data, as well as the data aggregation in time, in order to create an easy-to-use, searchable, unified and consistent pool of CORDEX data worldwide (cordex_archive_specifications).
A first version has been provided in 2010, and the last revision of version 1 is from 13 May 2013.
When CORDEX progressed it turned out that the documents was in many aspects unclear and did not contain enough details. Also, more options had to be included in order to allow the use of the CMOR (version 2) software.
Therefore it was decided to re-write the document. This new version 3.0 released at 26 Nov 2013, does not contain any new specifications incompatible with those of earlier versions, and therefore does not require a re-generation of any data compliant with version 1. New options in version 3.0 and any future additions, deletions, or modifications, including minor ones, are written in red.
