What is the ABLE log?
The ABLE log is the primary log of activities related to ABLE operations. Entries are made to the ABLE log by sending email to the appropriate address. The ABLE log is split into monthly files as time passes. Contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to know the email address for sending to the ABLE log. The current and past monthly ABLE logs can be viewed from a web browser at http://www.atmos.anl.gov/ABLE/data_archive/logs/
What are the available ABLE email distribution lists?
Email distribution lists have been established so the ABLE community can send email to the ABLE log and targeted individuals. Each monthly ABLE log file contains the received SMTP email with headers for that month. You may wish to download and view the monthly files with a mail tool of your choice.
The current set of distribution lists are : "ablefile", "ablelog", and "ablelist".
"ablefile" sends email only to the ABLE log file, no people are included.
"ablelog" sends email to the ABLE log file and a selected list of individuals involved directly in ABLE instrument operations, data flow, or web display.
"ablelist" is the most general list, sending to the ABLE log file and many individuals interested in ABLE operations.
What are some guidelines for ABLE log email content?
Whenever possible, the subject line of ablelog email should contain
a list of standard "keycodes" with a trailing colon.
These keycodes should be listed in general to specific order as follows:
First pick one general class: science: data: wx: equip:
Then pick additional descriptors as possible from the following categories:
Please make a subject fit to keycodes whenever
possible. E.G. Checking the alignment on the sodar pointing
read "calib:" Use keywords to which your entry applies: e.g. "equip: aws: cr10 battery replaced."
The trailing colon helps string searches to distinguish
between normal use of words and keycode use.
That way you can for instance use "phone" or "phone:" for normal or keycode use in your subject.
