Accuracy of the final IMAGE data

Final IMAGE magnetometer data have undergone a process during which The quality of the final data can thus be assumed high. Generally the user can expect that Note: due to the increased number of requests on newest events, we have also put preliminary data from some sites on-line. This concerns stations whose data according to our experience seldom include errors. These data will also go through the final verification.

Users of the data should always be critical (especially concerning timing), and PI should be informed of suspected errors. Examples of known problems at IMAGE stations are:

Generally such problems do not disturb case studies, but they can be detected especially in statistical studies. Some of the known errors cannot be easily found during the normal checking, which is more focused on single event comparison between stations.

No liability whatsoever is accepted for any loss or damage of any kind resulting from any errors or inaccuracy in the data that the IMAGE team provides.
