|CAVE Data Info & |
Data contained in CAVE are there because of the hard labor of people maintaining instruments in
difficult locations throughout the world. Therefore, if you use data contained in the CAVE data base
in refereed journal articles please reference all original data sources used according to
the following list.
Full policies of each agency are listed at the bottom of this page. One need only reference
those data sets used:

Formal policies if stated:
Data Attribution and Publication
6.The ARM Program should be acknowledged in publications as the programmatic origin of the field program.
ARM-funded investigators will use the following acknowledgment: "This research was supported by the Office of
Biological and Environment Research of the U.S. Department of Energy (under grant or contract number - if
appropriate) as part of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program." Publications resulting from collaborative
efforts in which ARM data or facilities were used are requested to appropriately acknowledge the cooperation or
collaboration of the " U.S. Department of Energy as part of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program."
2.3 Acknowledgement and Citation
Sub-group members were not able to reach full consensus on the issue of
acknowledgement and citation for BSRN data. While it is obvious that
the data should never be used without reference to the BSRN, views
diverged with regard to the format of the acknowledgement. Some members
wanted to provide users with a specific statement to be included as
acknowledgement, in which a number of contributors might be identified
individually. Others preferred an acknowledgement only of the
organizational origin of the data (e.g. BSRN, WCRP, WRMC and/or the
country or organization of the originating station) without specifying
individuals. The recommended compromise for this issue is to require in
general the organizational format, with the acknowledgement of
individuals left to the preference of the data originator and the
archive centre. Whenever the archive centre receives a request for
release of data from a particular originator, that originator and the
archive centre should agree on a detailed recommendation for citation
and acknowledgement and provide it to the requesting party. This
recommendation should be included on the Application Form for the
release of BSRN data.
NOAA GMD http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/
Any publication or other public or private use of this data should acknowledge
that is was acquired by and obtained from the NOAA/GMD Solar and Thermal
Radiation (STAR) group.
