Important information

The present version of the database is still under development and functionality will be added or might change. Concerning submission of datasets, the interactive upload function is handling data using UTF-8, some problem with other character encoding have been reported and our team is working hard to fix this bug. Please be aware if you submit datasets containing special characters and send us a message at damocles[the_usual_symbol]met.no if you can't find the data you have submitted within 48 hours.

All metadata, both those describing planned activities and those reflecting performed data collection activities, are free for everbody to search. Concerning the actual data, some of these are at present protected by passwords and only available to the project team while some other data may have a data policy making them available only to IPY scientists. Members of the project team, please contact damocles[the_usual_symbol]met.no by email if you have lost this. In order to upload files you have to register.
