Carbon Cycle-Greenhouse Gases data (CCGG)

Abstract: CCGG (Carbon Cycle-Greenhouse Gases) Data

The NOAA CMDL Carbon Cycle Greenhouse Gases group makes ongoing
discrete measurements from land and sea surface sites and aircraft,
and continuous measurements from baseline observatories and tall
towers. These measurements document the spatial and temporal
distributions of carbon-cycle gases and provide essential constraints
to our understanding of the global carbon cycle.

************ USE OF ESRL CCGG DATA ****************

These data are made freely available to the public and the
scientific community in the belief that their wide dissemination
will lead to greater understanding and new scientific insights.
The availability of these data does not constitute publication
of the data. We rely on the ethics and integrity of the user to
assure that ESRL receives fair credit for our work. If the data
are obtained for potential use in a publication or presentation,
ESRL should be informed at the outset of the nature of this work.
If the ESRL data are essential to the work, or if an important
result or conclusion depends on the ESRL data, co-authorship may
be appropriate. This should be discussed at an early stage in
the work. Manuscripts using the ESRL data should be sent to ESRL
for review before they are submitted for publication so we can
insure that the quality and limitations of the data are accurately

**************** RECIPROCITY AGREEMENT ****************

Use of these data implies an agreement to reciprocate.
Laboratories making similar measurements agree to make their
own data available to the general public and to the scientific
community in an equally complete and easily accessible form.
Modelers are encouraged to make available to the community,
upon request, their own tools used in the interpretation
of the ESRL data, namely well documented model code, transport
fields, and additional information necessary for other
scientists to repeat the work and to run modified versions.
Model availability includes collaborative support for new
users of the models.
