Abstract

The BADC holds a wide range of instrumental and model datasets of interest to the scientific community. From the point of view of data access, it is highly desirable to adhere to common file formats and file-naming conventions for all the data produced under the various projects. A well thought out and organised file-naming convention allows quick data access and avoids the user having to read the file in order to enquire as to its contents. Using this convention will save time and resources when setting up data management for each individual project, it will also allow greater analysis and manipulation of the data by software at the BADC (and beyond).
