All BSRN datasets retrievable via PANGAEA (see below) are subject to the data release guidelines of the BSRN. They are read account restricted. Only persons who follow the data release guidelines are allowed to use the data. Read accounts can be obtained from Amelie Driemel (amelie.driemel[at]awi.de).
Please note, that all data (PANGAEA and ftp) are provided in UTC universal time.
Data Retrieval via PANGAEA
WRMC highly recommends that all users do their own quality checks of the data after extracting BSRN-data!!!Since the beginning of 2012 the WRMC offers a BSRN-Toolbox which can be used to perform these QC checks. Any user who finds questionable data should inform the WRMC staff (Amelie Driemel) about the problem so the data can be double checked. If the problem is severe, the WRMC staff will contact the corresponding station scientists for corrections. If the corrected data cannot be submitted within a reasonable period of time, the questionable data will be deleted from PANGAEA, and a warning will be given in the corresponding station directory of the ftp-archive.

Additionally, a Google-like interface for searching and distributing BSRN-data via web may be used, see example. The output of the search interface are links to single monthly datasets. Following one link leads to the meta data of this dataset. The data itself can be obtained in different formats after you logged in.
