Programme:  The training course focuses on data formatting and submission of atmospheric in situ data to EBAS. The course aims to give data reporters an introduction to the data submission procedures, and NASA Ames 1001 EBAS data format used both in the ACTRIS, EMEP and GAW-WDCA databases. Each partner can bring their own measurement data from 2011, and the main goal is that these are reported to EBAS by the end of the course.

The participants will be trained in the whole process of data preparation; from formatting data in level 0-1-2 to submission of data to the database and the final quality control. See the attached agenda for more information. Instruments covered by the course includes: CPC, S/DMPS, photometers, nephelometer, online and offline GCs, PTR-MS, HPLS and others.
