Metadata Taxonomy

Lawrence et al 2009 (doi:10.1098/rsta.2008.0237) introduced a metadata taxonomy which classifed relevant metadata into Archive, Browse, Character, Discovery and Extra.

The ACES group has been carrying out work on A metadata for managing data at scale (such as the CF Conventions), and B metadata related to documenting climate models (ES-DOC) and managing heterogeneous data (such as MOLES - Parton et al, 2015, doi:10.2218/ijdc.v10i1.365).
