This data set is my analysis of data management plans (DMPs) that were written by researchers at the University of Michigan for awards made between March 2020 and February 2021. I conducted this analysis to explore the potential utility of DMPs as a tool to aid data curators in understanding and working with the associated data set. Variables collected include: the types and formats of the expected data sets, information about the metadata and documentation to be generated, the anticipated methods for making the data set publicly available, references to Intellectual Property allowances or concerns, and the stated duration for preserving the data sets.
As part of the Flaring & Fossil Fuels: Uncovering Emissions & Losses (F3UEL) project, in 2022 the aircraft measurement platform sampled offshore oil & gas facilities in the US Gulf of Mexico to quantify facility-level emissions using the approach detailed in Conley et al. (2017). Vertical profiles were conducted on each flight to capture the vertical structure and mixing depths of the atmosphere. The data file contains all merged flight data from each flight day.
