IMAGE rules of the road

IMAGE has an "open access" policy, i.e. the final magnetometer data are freely available for scientific use. The institutes maintaining the network have invested a considerable amount of resources to provide high-quality data. Therefore it is important that these institutes have a measure of the scientific return on their investment. Accordingly, we ask that any publication or presentation making use of IMAGE data should include an acknowledgement statement such as:

"We thank the institutes who maintain the IMAGE Magnetometer Array: Tromsø Geophysical Observatory of UiT the Arctic University of Norway (Norway), Finnish Meteorological Institute (Finland), Institute of Geophysics Polish Academy of Sciences (Poland), GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences (Germany), Geological Survey of Sweden (Sweden), Swedish Institute of Space Physics (Sweden), Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory of the University of Oulu (Finland), and Polar Geophysical Institute (Russia)."

A basic reference to IMAGE magnetometer network is

Tanskanen, E.I. (2009): A comprehensive high-throughput analysis of substorms observed by IMAGE magnetometer network: Years 1993-2003 examined.
J. Geophys. Res., 114, A05204, doi:10.1029/2008JA013682.

Data policies of individual data providers are listed in the table below. Any questions concerning the data policy can be directed to the PI (liisa.juusola (at) fmi.fi).
