NRT data disclaimer:
OMI Near Real Time (NRT) data are being distributed at no cost to the users to promote
scientific utilization of OMI data with the stipulation that the users of the data agree
to follow the policy described below:
OMI Publication Policy:
- NRT products are not necessarily of the same quality as the archived products. When
the archived products are produced the NRT products are deleted. To control the number
of different versions of the data in the community we require that the users receiving
OMI NRT data not distribute them. This also allows the OMI project to notify the data
recipients if problems are found with the data or when we change the algorithm
- OMI NRT data are produced on a best effort basis. The OMI project cannot guarantee
uninterrupted data delivery. The users, therefore, should not use OMI NRT data in
applications where such interruptions would be considered undesirable.
- The user of the OMI NRT data are requested to respect the OMI Publication Policy described below.
- In publications, presentations, or on web pages based on OMI data the
following acknowledgment should be included :
"OMI NRT data were provided by KNMI (The Netherlands) and were produced in
collaboration with NASA (USA).
OMI, a Dutch-Finnish built instrument, is a part of NASA's EOS-Aura payload.
The OMI project is managed by NIVR and KNMI in the Netherlands."
Production of scientific data from a satellite instrument requires a team of highly
dedicated people whose contributions often do not get acknowledged in publications.
It is strongly advised that in publications resulting from the use of OMI data
relevant members of the OMI team be invited to be co-authors. Please contact the
OSAB for the co-author recommendation.
OMI Science Advisory Board (OSAB):
The OSAB consist of members selected by the three participating countries: Pieternel Levelt,
OMI PI, KNMI, The Netherlands (levelt.at.knmi.nl); Johanna Tamminen, OMI Co-PI, FMI, Finland
(Johanna.tamminen.at.fmi.fi); and Pawan Bhartia, OMI US Science Team Leader, NASA GSFC, USA
The OMI data provision via this web-interface is part of the TEMIS project within the framework
of the Data User Programma of ESA.
