Data Submission Procedures at GAW-WDCA, GAW-WDCRG and the EBAS Data Centre
The overall goal of the GAW World Data Centre for Aerosol (WDCA) and World Data Centre for Reactive Gases (WDCRG) is to integrate information and measurement from all parts of the globe to obtain new information and facilitate easy access to atmospheric research data. The lecture aims to give first- hand information and training in data formatting and data submission procedures to current and future station managers, project leaders and data submitters.
The systems and services implemented at the data centre, ranging from data formatting templates, the online format checker and the submission tool, to the database web pages will be discussed in detail.
Further, the lecture will cover relevant topics such as the importance of data reporting, the value of sharing data and data policies
