The Metafor project has developed a common
information model (CIM) using the ISO19100 series for-
malism to describe numerical experiments carried out by
the Earth system modelling community, the models they
use, and the simulations that result. Here we describe the
mechanism by which the CIM was developed, and its key
properties. We introduce the conceptual and application ver-
sions and the controlled vocabularies developed in the con-
text of supporting the fifth Coupled Model Intercomparison
Project (CMIP5). We describe how the CIM has been used in
experiments to describe model coupling properties and de-
scribe the near term expected evolution of the CIM.
