The WHOTS Database

The WHOTS project is committed to providing free and open access to its data set in a timely manner, and the use of these data is encouraged.

We require that users fill out a brief one-time registration form before acquiring these datasets.

The continuous flow of these data depends on funding, and that depends in part on the credits that we get from the data users. If you use these data in your project, please contact Dr. Robert Weller or Prof. Roger Lukas to avoid possible duplication of efforts. Please consider the benefits of possible scientific collaborations in the analysis of these data. If you use our data in your project, we would appreciate your acknowledgment of the WHOTS and HOT projects. The following should be cited in publications:
