Citing GHRC DAAC Data

Data Citations and Acknowledgements

 

Citations: Datasets and related data products and services are provided by the NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC, managed by the NASA Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) project. The GHRC DAAC is one of the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), part of the ESDIS project. NASA data are freely accessible; however, when you publish these data or works based on the data, we request that you cite the datasets within the text of the publication and include a reference to them in your reference list. References to datasets, like the examples, below, should have enough detail to provide readers of your publication with the ability to obtain the datasets and conduct their own studies based on your work. (For complete provenance and understanding of specifically which parts of data were used and how, it also may be necessary to describe in detail, within the body of the publication, exactly how the data were used.)

Please note that a recommended citation is provided for each dataset and appears on the NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center DAAC landing page that describes the dataset. The citation can be downloaded in RIS format, and the elements contained in the recommended citation can be reorganized for compliance with a particular reference style that is specified by a publisher.

 

Acknowledgements: An acknowledgement is a general statement that can be used to provide credit to the NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center DAAC for data, assistance, or reviews that have been provided. Please include such statements, either where the use of the data or other resource is described, or within the Acknowledgements section of the publication.
