SWEX Dataset Submission Instructions

The NCAR/EOL SWEX home page contains relevant links to project and data documentation, distributed data access, and other collaborating projects' datasets.

An initial Master List of all SWEX datasets has been compiled to provide easy access to all operational and research SWEX datasets. This list will form the NCAR/EOL SWEX Field 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 eol-archive@ucar.edu. 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 NCAR/EOL SWEX Field 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 eol-archive@ucar.edu. 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.  Once you have FTPed your Data and Readme, please notify us by sending an email to eol-archive@ucar.edu. or Linda Echo-Hawk at echohawk@ucar.edu.
