SPICULE Data Submission Guidelines

An initial master list of all SPICULE datasets (with links) has been compiled to provide easy access to all operational and research SPICULE datasets. This list will form the SPICULE Field Data Archive at NCAR Earth Observing Laboratory where datasets are grouped and sorted by category (i.e., radar, satellite, etc.) and platform. Please review this list to verify that your dataset(s) are properly named, with the appropriate authors identified. Email any corrections, additions, or deletions directly to echohawk@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 SPICULE 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 echohawk@ucar.edu.  If you have a large number of files to FTP, please tar or zip your files by day or what makes sense for your dataset.

Submitted datasets must be accompanied by sufficient documentation. Details about the required metadata to be included in your readme file can be found in the Data Set Documentation Requirements.

Data Submission FTP Instructions for the SPICULE Field Data Archive at NCAR/EOL:

    FTP:   ftp.eol.ucar.edu
    Login:    anonymous     (No password required.)
    cd /pub/data/incoming/spicule  (NOTE: This command should be done all in one step.)

It is very important to notify us by sending an email to echohawk@ucar.edu  once your file(s) have been FTPed.


Thank you for providing data to the Field Data Archive at NCAR/EOL. Feel free to contact us with any questions or issues.
