Please read the ObsPack Fair Use Statement before accessing any products from this web site.

Fair Use Statement

These cooperative data products are made freely available to the scientific community and are intended to stimulate and support carbon cycle modeling studies. We rely on the ethics and integrity of the user to assure that each contributing national and university laboratory receives fair credit for their work. Fair credit will depend on the nature of the work and the requirements of the institutions involved. Your use of an ObsPack data product implies an agreement to contact each contributing laboratory to discuss the nature of the work and the appropriate level of acknowledgement. If an ObsPack data product is essential to the work, or if an important result or conclusion depends on an ObsPack product, co-authorship may be appropriate. This should be discussed with each data provider at an early stage in the work. Contacting the data providers is not optional; if you use an ObsPack data product, you must contact the data providers. To help you meet your obligation, each data product includes an e-mail distribution list of all data providers. ObsPack data products must be obtained directly from the ObsPack Data Portal at www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/obspack/ and may not be re-distributed.

Beginning November 2013, all new ObsPack data products will have a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI) registered with the International DOI Foundation. In addition to the conditions of fair use as stated above, users must also include the ObsPack product citation in any publication or presentation using the product. The required citation is included in every data product and in the automated e-mail sent to the user during product download.

Beginning November 2013, there are no longer any exceptions to this policy; it applies to all ObsPack products including GLOBALVIEW.
