MOTIF Database Local Access


The data files stored in the MOTIF database can be accessed either remotely or locally.

Getting a computer account at LSCE

If you are MOTIF partner, you (or somebody from your group) should already have an account. If this is not the case, please send a mail to the database administrator.

If you are not a MOTIF partner, you may want to look at the same page on the PMIP 2 web site...
