BADM Templates

The non-continuous information, including general station description, metadata about the sensors and setup, maintenance and disturbance events, biological and ecological data that characterize the ecosystem etc., are submitted using the BADM system. The Biological, Ancillary, Disturbance and Metadata (BADM) protocol is standardized across the FLUXNET networks, in particular between AmeriFlux and the European Network. In the context of ICOS specific variables designed for the characteristics of the ICOS data (raw data processing, standardized protocols and Instructions etc.) have been created following exactly the same BADM structure and logic. All the ICOS-BADM variables are fully compatible with the standard BADM and the ETC will care about their reformatting and aggregation.

In the table here below the ICOSBADM templates today available are reported with the link to download them. Note that these versions are exactly the same available in the ICOS Alfresco system. For more information about the BADM system and how to fill in the template or the online tool refer to the Instruction on how to use the ICOSBADM.
