TOAR data gathering meeting (recodings & slides are available)

The central TOAR data infrastructure at Forschungszentrum Jülich provides:

  • the TOAR database of surface observations, and
  • the TOAR data portal, i.e. a catalogue of worldwide ozone datasets including data from satellites, sondes, and models

on 13:00 – 15:00 UTC, 21.01.2022.

In this gathering, we would like to

  • Identify new data sources for the portal and the database
  • Explain the procedures to have data appear in the TOAR data portal
  • Explain the procedures for providing data to the TOAR database
  • Answer any questions you may have concerning these topics
  • The meeting will be recorded to serve as a future reference for the provision of data to TOAR.
