Post Field Phase Data Submission Instructions

The MAIR-E home page contains relevant links to project and data documentation, distributed data access, and other collaborating projects' datasets.

An initial master list of all MAIR-E datasets will be compiled to provide easy access to all operational and research MAIR-E datasets. This list will form the NCAR/EOL MAIR-E Long-term Data Archive where datasets are grouped by category (i.e., radar, satellite, etc.) and platform. Please review this list to verify that your dataset(s) are properly named and have the appropriate authors identified. Email any corrections, additions or deletions directly to If you already have your datasets available on-line elsewhere, please email the link(s) or FTP access information.

To submit your dataset(s) and documentation to the MAIR-E Long-term Data Archive, see the anonymous FTP instructions below. For users without Internet access or if your dataset(s) are too large to FTP (e.g., 250GB or larger), please contact If you have a large number of files to FTP, please tar and/or compress (e.g., zip, gzip) your files before transferring the files.

It is critical that submitted datasets are accompanied by sufficient documentation. Each dataset MUST be accompanied by a readme file that meets the Data Set Documentation Requirements.
