DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) has developed Triangle Trans-Ocean Buoy Network (TRITON) buoy in 1998, and nearly 20 moorings have been deployed in the western tropical Pacific and eastern tropical Indian Ocean. These moorings in Pacific Ocean make Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO)/TRITON array in cooperation with Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) and National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) in National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in United States. On the other hand, the moorings in Indian Ocean make Research moored Array for African-Asia-Australian Monsoon Analysis and prediction (RAMA) array as a multinational effort for Indian Ocean Observing System. These arrays are a part of Global Climate Observing system (GCOS), Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and Global Earth Observing System (GEOSS).

Each buoy measures temperature, salinity, mixed layer currents for oceanic variables, and wind temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, precipitation and short wave radiation for meteorological variables. These measured variables is essential for monitoring, understanding and forecasting of short-term climatic phenomena, such as El Nino and southern oscillation and Indian Ocean dipole event.

Data and graphic displays from these arrays are updated every day, and freely available to use for research, operational forecasting, educational activities and so on. For more detailed information, please refer TRITON and IOMICS web sites.

USE CONSTRAINTS

Data Policy for Project

Asian Monsoon Year Project

1. No financial implications are involved for the AMY data exchange.

2. Commercial use and exploitation of AMY data is prohibited.

3. Any re-export or transfer of the original data received from the CDA archive to a third party is prohibited.

4. The origin of AMY data being used for publication of scientific results must be acknowledged and referenced in the publication.

5. AMY data users are strongly encouraged to establish direct contact with data providers for complete interpretation and analysis of data for publication purposes.

6. Co-authorship of data users and AMY Projects’ Principle Investigators on papers making extensive use of AMY data is justifiable and highly recommended.

@

@Whenever AMY data distributed by CDA are being used for publication of scientific results, the author(s) shall sent a copy of the respective publication, preferably in electronic form, to the CDA in order to build up a AMY publication library. CDA will maintain this library and will it make public, for example via CDA's web site, for a continuous monitoring of the AMY data applications and AMY's achievements in general.

Data Integration and Analysis System

The terms of data use of data providers take first priority over the DIAS data usage policy. In the event a data provider has not established terms of use, the following DIAS project data terms of use apply.

1. Users shall prioritize and abide by terms of use stipulated by a data provider in the event such exist

2. The use of DIAS data sets is limited to research and educational purposes [*1]

3. Users shall not modify the content of DIAS data sets

4. Users shall not provide the content of DIAS data sets to third parties

5. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall cite in parenthesis the text given as the data citation

6. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall submit a copy of the work (an offprint in the case of a paper, or a copy of the lecture summary in the case of an oral or poster presentation) to the DIAS office below

[*1] Data sets whose commercial usage are allowed under the data policy by data provider will be also allowed to be used commercially as DIAS data sets, after ongoing preparation works have been completed. Please contact the DIAS Office for more details.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Project Acknowledgement

Asian Monsoon Year Project

Whenever AMY data distributed by the CDA are being used for publication of scientific results, the data's origin must be acknowledged and referenced. A minimum requirement is to reference AMY and the CDA. If only data from one observation site (or a limited number of observation sites) has been used, additional acknowledgement to the observation site(s) and its (their) maintaining institutions or organizations shall be given.

Maintaining continuous, high-quality measurements, performing quality and error checking procedures, and submitting data and related documentation to the CDA will require substantial financial and logistical efforts of the data providers. The necessary support for these observation site activities originate from a variety of international, national and institutional sources. The CDA shall make proper reference to all AMY data providers and, if required, to their funding sources.

Data Integration and Analysis System

Whenever DIAS dataset is used for any academic presentations, and any publication of scientific results, the author(s) shall specify the following acknowledgement and if the data provider has their own acknowledgement quotation, the author(s) shall use both acknowledgements.

"The DIAS dataset is archived and provided under the framework of the Data Integration and Analysis System (DIAS) funded by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)."
