The BLLAST Data and Publication Policy

Download in pdf format.

Boundary-Layer Late Afternoon and Sunset Turbulence (BLLAST) project brings together re- search scientists who work on this transitory part of the day, when the surface heating sharply decreases, turbulence is decaying and the boundary layer is beginning to stratify, at the end of a convective day. This transition remains poorly understood, though it may have significant impacts on trace gas transport and scale interaction.

The aims of the BLLAST Data and Publication Policy are

  1. to ensure rapid exchange of data and results within the BLLAST participants group,
  2. to define mutual rights and obligations of data producers and data users, and in particular to ensure that BLLAST contributing scientists are associated to the scientific studies using the data they produced,
  3. to help monitoring the scientific production of the project
  4. to ensure that BLLAST data are preserved and made available after the end of the project.

The present data and publication policy covers the measurement data collected during the BLLAST field campaign that occurred at the “Centre de Recherches Atmosphériques” in Lannemezan from 14 June to 8 July 2011.

The access given to the data through this policy allows the sole and direct use of the data for scientific and educational activities. This categorically excludes the redistribution of data to third parties and the usage for commercial applications. Any commercial use of a dataset should be negotiated directly with the owners of the dataset, who generally are those who have paid for the data collection. The contact for such an agreement is the dataset principal investigator whose name is mentioned in the Metadata.

The data were originally collected for specific purposes and no warranty is given as to their suitability for use by the recipient. The database centers, the data owners and the data principal investigators have no liability for any loss, damage, claim, demand, cost or expense directly or indirectly arising from any use, receipt or supply of data under this agreement.
