NERC MSTRF: access to the data

Acknowledgement of the data provider

There are two routes for accessing data from the NERC MST Radar Facility. These are described below. In either case, you must acknowledge the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) as the data provider wherever the data are used. More details about NCAS's data policy can be found on the Atmospheric Measurement & Observation Facility (AMOF) website.

If you use the data within a publication, you should also cite the dataset in the same way as you would cite a publication. The exact format to use within the bibliography section of the publication is given within the Citable as section of the relevant Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) catalogue page. You can find a link to this page through the Datasets section of the NERC MST Radar Facility dataset collection CEDA catalogue page. The basic format is as follows:
