The Documentation Manual contains descriptive information about each data-set and exact file descriptions for each element in the data-set. The data-set descriptions are structured according to a precise template that is described in detail below (DOCUMENTATION TEMPLATE DEFINITIONS). The Data-Set Description provides an in-depth identification and tracking of the data-set and its technical properties, and gives key references for the data-set. At the end of this description is a summary of any Data Integration and Quality work associated with the project. Such work may range from simple format conversion to complicated re-structuring, interpolation, and testing. A User's Guide is provided as a separate document. In addition to their printed versions, the User's Guide and Documentation Manuals are provided in computer-readable form (bit-mapped image format) on the CD-ROMs. Reprints of the Primary References, including published journal articles, if applicable, are provided separately from the Documentation Manual as scanned image files on the CD-ROM. Reprints are assembled from available reports and publications, with permission from the authors and publishers. Only materials that are directly relevant to documenting the data-sets are reproduced.
