Service Provider Description
The NCAR CISL Research Data Archive is part of the Scientific Computing Division at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. NCAR operates under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation.


Data services will vary across our dataset holdings, but many of our sets can be subsetted (e.g. provide specific times, stations, grids), reformatted (e.g. provide the data in a standard format or human-readable ASCII), and used to derive new products (e.g. monthly means of daily data). Also, many of our datasets have supporting documentation and software access codes. You can get access to documentation or software for a particular dataset from the navigation bar on the dataset's web page. To find out whether or not data in a dataset can be subsetted or reformatted, contact the specialist listed on the dataset page.

If you use data provided by us in published research, we request that you acknowledge the original source (or sources) of the data. This information is located on the dataset pages. We also request that you acknowledge NCAR approximately as follows:

"The data were provided by the Data Support Section of the Scientific Computing Division at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. NCAR is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation."
