Assimilation of Remote-sensed Data for Applications in the Atmospheric and Oceanographic Sciences (ARDAAOS)


* Introduction

The Assimilation of Remote-sensed Data for Applications in the Atmospheric and Oceanographic Sciences (ARDAAOS) Programme is a NERC thematic research programme directed at developing and promoting the expertise of the UK scientific community in the area of assimilation techniques applied to remote-sensed atmospheric and oceanographic data. The programme started in 1998 and ended in 2003.

* Access to data and software

Data and software supplied to the BADC by some of the projects are stored in the BADC ARDAAOS archive. To protect the investigators' right to validate and publish their results, access to the archive was restricted to the participants to the corresponding project for one year following the project end date. For information about a specific project, please refer to the list of projects or browse the ARDAAOS archive. The Cambridge Chemical Assimilation Data has a special status insofar as it is public but its access is subject to the signature of the Met Office agreement (see Cambridge Chemical Assimilation Data Web page).

* Data, software and metadata submission

The Steering Committee of the ARDAAOS Programme has made it a requirement that data from any particular project would be submitted to its designated data centre at the latest within the last three months of the project. If you are a data provider, please read the submission instructions before using the BADC data file uploader.

* Documentation

The BADC provides a list of the projects funded under the programme, with their principal investigators, data set status and links to relevant information. For data availability, format, etc., please refer to the individual project Web pages at BADC (see Links below).
