   Data Access & Policy


 
Updated 22 April 2011

Primary Users

MERMAID has originally been developed for supporting the MERIS Maintenance & Evolution project. Members of the MERIS Quality Working Group (MQWG) have access to the database within the frame of their mandate as defined and approved by ESA. In situ data providers with successful matchups with MERIS data are also granted access to the database.

External Users
Any investigators outside the scope of the MERIS maintenance & evolution project can request access to the database by sending a short description of their project and the intended use of the MERMAID data at mermaid@acri.fr. Access will be granted through a Service Level Agreement (SLA).

Acknowledgements and Proprietary Rights

When MERMAID extractions are used in publications, the Principal Investigators of in situ data (PIs) should always be contacted for approval, be offered co-authorship and acknowledged. The PIs and contact details are listed in the table below and appear in the MERIS extractions.

ACRI-ST and ARGANS should always be acknowledged too, as quality control, post-processing, MERIS processing, extractions, database system and web facility are proprietary and operated on behalf of ESA.

Restrictions

Access is strictly personal through nominative login and password.
MERMAID extractions and data should only be used for the validation purpose defined when access was granted; in particular redistribution of MERMAID extractions directly or through external facilities/database is forbidden.


If you intend to use MERMAID extractions in a publication or a report, please:

  • Consult the PI(s) via e-mail to get approval of in situ data use, inform him/her/them of his/her/their data use and offer co-authorship.

  • Acknowledge the PIs and associated projects, e.g.: We thank (the Project/PI) for the (cruise/experiment) data.

  • Acknowledge the MERMAID facility and services, e.g.: We thank ACRI-ST, ARGANS and ESA for access to the MERMAID system. (http://hermes.acri.fr/mermaid)
