It is EOL's policy to foster scientific
research through simple and timely community access to all
data collected by EOL facilities. This page links EOL's data,
policies and request procedures.
NCAR/EOL Data Archive:
EOL/CDS maintains an archive of all data collected through the
use of EOL platforms or data-collection systems. CDS serves as
an initial contact for all user requests, working then with the
other groups within EOL to ensure
that a user's needs are met.
EOL/CDS maintains a web based tool that allows data retrieval from
the mass store. Most EOL data from calendar year 2000 and beyond
are accessible from this tool. Some older datasets are also available.
Project Data Catalog:
EOL/RAF maintains a site with online bitfile logs that allow users to find
NCAR aircraft data on the NCAR/SCD Mass Store System by project name or number.
EOL/SSSF Surface Data Archive:
Project reports and data links for surface datasets from ISFF,
PAM and ASTER.
NCAR/EOL Codiac system:
Atmospheric, meteorological, and other geophysical datasets
from operational sources and the scientific research programs for which
NCAR/EOL and UCAR/JOSS have provided data management support.
TOGA COARE Soundings
EOL and Vaisala have identified a fundamental bias in humidity
sensors used in the TOGA COARE Radiosondes. Using Vaisala calibration
data, EOL/SSSF has developed a correction scheme that appears to
work well and was funded by NSF to apply these corrections to all
TOGA COARE Soundings Data (see NSF
proposal). A seminar, "Dry
Bias in Global Radiosonde Humidity Data: Cause, Correction and
Consequences", was presented by EOL to the NWS and NSF on 22 Feb
1999. The presentation is
