3 ) Citation. It is considered a matter of professional ethics to acknowledge the work of other scientists. Thus, the Data User will properly cite the Data Set in any publications or in the metadata of any derived data products that were produced using the Data Set. Citation should take the following general form: Creator, Year of Data Publication, Title of Dataset, Publisher, Dataset identifier. For example:

Shaver, G. 1989. Above ground biomass in acidic tussock tundra experimental site, 1989, Arctic LTER, Toolik, Alaska. Arctic LTER, Marine Biological Lab, Woods Hole, Ma 02543. 1989gsttbm http://ecosystems.mbl.edu/arc/terrest/biomass/index.shtml 

4 ) Acknowledgement. The Data User should acknowledge any institutional support or specific funding awards referenced in the metadata accompanying this dataset in any publications where the Data Set contributed significantly to its content. Acknowledgements should identify the supporting party, the party that received the support, and any identifying information such as grant numbers. For example:

Data sets were provided by the Arctic LTER. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grants #DEB-981022, 9211775, 8702328; #OPP-9911278, 9911681, 9732281, 9615411, 9615563, 9615942, 9615949, 9400722, 9415411, 9318529; #BSR 9019055, 8806635, 8507493.

TAXONOMIC COVERAGE:
Organisms studied
 
Methods:
Stage height measurements taken at gauging station and discharge calculated from stage height by using a "stage/discharge relationship".

Notes: Ox Creek discharge data was acquired from the USGS in Fairbanks who use their gauging station on the creek to monitor the stage height. More detailed methods of their Hydrologic Unit, calibration measurements and regression curve were not available at the time of this file. Discharge values, as mean daily discharge, were given in ft^3/sec and were converted by LTER staff to m^3/sec. See Oksrukuyik Creek 1988 Discharge paper file for more details.

DISCHARGE2 = DISCHARGE1 * 0.02832
