Note relating to SIRTA data to maintain the integrity of the SIRTA data base and to ensure its perenniality:
SIRTA data are accessible freely and free of cost, for public research and teaching applications.
SIRTA data should only be distributed through SIRTA ftp and web access. SIRTA data not available online can be distributed
by SIRTA instrument PIs.
Distribution of SIRTA data by third parties is prohibited.
The users of SIRTA data must verify that the data they are using is intended for publication; refer to the advice of instrument
The source of SIRTA data used in the framework of a publication must be mentioned in an explicit way in the acknowledgment
section by a sentence of the type:
« The authors would like to acknowledge SIRTA for providing the lidar data used in this study
When mentioning or describing the SIRTA observatory in a publication, use the following reference: (Haeffelin et al., 2005)
For the use of SIRTA data requiring a specific interpretation work and discussions essential to the exploitation of the data,
it is required that relevant instrument PIs be proposed co-authorship in related publications.
The use of data, in synergy with SIRTA data, originating from another organization (e.g. Meteo-France, AERONET, etc...) requires
specific mention of that source of data.
