In Short

Data are stored in two different places: one share stores RAW DATA, the other share stores PROCESSED DATA.

What Are Raw Data?

Raw data are files that are directly generated by sensors & loggers. These files are then transfered from the site to ETH, where they are sorted into their respective destination folders in the raw data storage.

What Are Processed Data?

Raw data are used to generate processed data. Everytime raw data are altered in any way it becomes processed data.

Some examples:

  • When air temperature has a lot of gaps in its time series and is therefore gap-filled, the gap-filled time series is processed data.
  • Data from the sonic anemometers and gas analyzers (raw data) are used to calculate eddy covariance fluxes (processed data).

How Can I Access the Data?

Raw data are stored here: \\\archive.

Processed data are stored here: \\\processing.

Anything Else I Need to Know?

Yes. There will be a new share for automatic calculations. The same share will also host our new database. And the same share will fill the missing link between raw data and processed data. Coming in 2018
