  Description     : Climate Model Ouput Rewriter

The "Climate Model Output Rewriter" (CMOR, pronounced "Seymour") comprises a set of C-based functions, with bindings to both Python and FORTRAN 
that can be used to produce CF-compliant netCDF files that fulfill the requirements of many of the climate community's standard model experiments. 
These experiments are collectively referred to as MIP's and include, for example, AMIP, CMIP, CFMIP, PMIP, APE, and IPCC scenario runs. The output 
resulting from CMOR is "self-describing" and facilitates analysis of results across models.

Much of the metadata written to the output files is defined in MIP-specific tables, typically made available from each MIP's web site. CMOR relies on 
these tables to provide much of the metadata that is needed in the MIP context, thereby reducing the programming effort required of the individual MIP
