The various datasets on the CRU website are provided for all to use, provided the sources are acknowledged.

Acknowledgement should preferably be by citing one or more of the papers referenced on the appropriate page. Some datasets are also disseminated via disciplinary data repositories (if indicated on the individual data page), which can provide persistent links or doi's to a particular dataset. The website can also be acknowledged if deemed necessary, though note that the URLs may sometimes be changed. We endeavour to update many of the data pages at timely intervals although this cannot be guaranteed by specific dates.

Datasets are managed by a variety of people and projects within CRU. Some are available online, others must be requested from the person responsible for them.

Files ending in ".gz" can be decompressed using gzip (most platforms), WinZip (Windows) or the in-built capability of many operating systems.
