The ATMODAT standard aims at improving the FAIRness of atmospheric model data published with a DataCite DOI in repositories. The ATMODAT standard is a quality guideline that provides concrete recommendations related to the maturity, publication and enhanced FAIRness of atmospheric model data. The guideline defines requirements for rich metadata with controlled vocabularies, structured landing pages, and for the format and internal structure of the data files.
