Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

A major effort has been made to establish consistent procedures for all aspects of data acquisition and data processing.  These are described in a set of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that are included in Appendix 4.  These SOPs provide a useful reference for investigators wanting to know more about exactly what was done.  Any outdated versions of SOPs are retained and are available on request.
