Data retrieval via ftp
Data can be obtained from the ftp-server: (ftp://ftp.bsrn.awi.de/). The ftp-server used to be browser-accessible via e.g. Mozilla, but the access is blocked now by most browsers. Access via an ftp client, e.g. FileZilla is another way to download the ftp files. Access via an UNIX ftp-tool is recommended. The former read account is still valid. New read accounts will be offered to anybody who accepts the data release guidelines. Accounts can be obtained from Amelie Driemel (amelie.driemel[at]awi.de).
The ftp-server contains one directory for each BSRN station named according to the event label in the station listing. Within each directory GNU-ziped station-to-archive files are accessible. The files are named XXXMMYY.dat.gz with XXX=event label, MM=Month, YY=Year.
Each file is separated into logical records described Update of the Technical Plan for BSRN Data Management.
