Curating Atmospheric Data for long term use : Infrastructure and Preservation Issues for the Atmospheric Sciences community - SCARP Case Study No. 2

1 juin 2009

Publié le 18 août 2011, par Thérèse Hameau

This DCC SCARP engaged with a number of archives, including the British Atmospheric Data Centre, the World Data Centre Archive at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and the European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association (EISCAT). We developed a preservation analysis methodology capable of identifying and drawing out discipline specific preservation requirements and issues.

We present the methodology along with its application to the Mesospheric Stratospheric Tropospheric (MST) radar dataset, which is currently supported by and accessed through the British Atmospheric Data Centre. We suggest strategies for the long-term preservation of the MST data and make recommendations for the wider community.
