Abstract: SUNY-Albany controls LDM access to the NLDN data; universities interested in
receiving the NLDN data should contact David Knight ( .
These universities will be able to use the data for one month to determine the
scope and usability of the data. After that time, a brief, one-page document
(synopsis) of the planned use/publication must be submitted for Vaisala's
approval. Submissions should be made to Dr. David Knight as above. Vaisala's
