FAQ for Data Transfer to CPTEC

I have collected data, now what do I do?

Raw - Original raw data collected in Brazil must remain in Brazil with the Brazilian Counterpart.
Preliminary Year 1 - LBA Data Policy requires that your data be publicly available one year from collection. Submit Year-1 data to CPTEC and create or update its corresponding metadata file via the LBA Metadata Editor (LME).
Preliminary Years 2+ - Continue to update your metadata files and submit copies of your interim data sets to CPTEC.
Final - Submit final QA'd and documented data sets to CPTEC and update corresponding metadata files.


Transferring Data to CPTEC

If I submit data to CPTEC, will it automatically be visible to the public?

 No, you have to instruct LBA DIS to archive it in a publicly accessible area.

How do I submit my data to CPTEC?

 Data should be directed to the LBA DIS Manager via FTP, CD,email, or surface mail. Include data description; science team code; contact information; related metadata file, if applicable; and an indication whether the data are to be publicly accessible or restricted.

I've submitted preliminary data to CPTEC. May I continue to distribute the data from my home institution?

Yes, it is understood that while your data are still being processed and QA'd, your copy will be the most current version, and the data access URL in the metadata may continue to point to your copy.

When do I need to submit final data sets?

 At this point, there is not a deadline associated with final data set submission.
