Convert a CF Standard Name to/from a GCMD Science Keyword

This web page lets you convert a CF Standard Name (external link) to/from a GCMD Science Keyword (external link).
Usually, there are more than one GCMD Science Keywords associated with a given
CF Standard Name, and vice versa. For example, converting the CF Standard Name
  air_pressure

into GCMD Science Keywords leads to
  Atmosphere > Atmospheric Pressure > Atmospheric Pressure Measurements
  Atmosphere > Atmospheric Pressure > Sea Level Pressure
and
  Atmosphere > Atmospheric Pressure > Static Pressure.

This is useful if, for example, you have a dataset with CF Standard Names
and want to add GCMD Science Keywords to the dataset's keywords metadata.
