KAIRA SCIENCE :
Data Policy |
Any publication or presentation which makes non-trivial use of KAIRA data must
also include the following acknowledgement:
KAIRA was funded by the University of Oulu and the FP7 European Regional Development Fund and is operated by Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory with assistance from the University of Tromsø.
Applying for time or data
With a few restrictions, it is possible to apply for time on the KAIRA facility or request KAIRA data from other programmes. Any scientists wishing to do so should contact the KAIRA PI
. Currently all projects making non-trivial use of KAIRA data are required to have an SGO-affiliated person as co-author
on published papers unless agreed otherwise. Examples of SGO-affiliated persons are Markku Lehtinen, Antti Kero, Derek McKay, Tero Raita, et al.
, but typically it would be appropriate to include whoever carried out the data-reduction.
KAIRA staff are able to provide limited support for observations. Please arrange this with plenty of time to ensure that the appropriate arrangements can be made. Please note that KAIRA staff are unable to provide support for the EISCAT facilities.
Data is typically only kept on the system for up-to-six moths.
Scientists are responsible for their own data recovery and archiving.
For details on this, or about additional storage options, please contact
the KAIRA PI
before commencing observations.
In addition a long-term archive is maintained of all core KAIRA data
products. Publications making use of such archived material may
optionally include this credit in the acknowledgements: "KAIRA data
curation is provided by D. McKay."
Many universities and university instruments (incl. KAIRA) now operate an open-publication policy. Any publication made using KAIRA data must be provided (either in final, or pre-proof) format for storage on the server.
Optical / Riometric Keograms
Optical/riometric keograms are available, which are summary plots of the interferometric riometry which is carried out routinely. For more information, contact Derek McKay (firstname.lastname@example.org).
