Information sur l'utilisation des données
Conditions d'utilisation des donnéesPermission is granted to use these data in research and publications when accompanied by the following statement: "The AMMA-CATCH regional observing system was set up thanks to an incentive funding of the French Ministry of Research that allowed pooling together various pre-existing small scale observing setups. The continuity and long term perenity of the measurements are made possible by an undisrupted IRD funding since 1990 and by a continuous CNRS-INSU funding since 2005."
