As of July 31, 2015, the JMA has relaxed its Terms and Conditions of Use for Japanese 55-year Reanalysis (JRA-55) Products. The main change is that "JMA provides the datasets with no imposition of restrictions regarding the purpose of use and/or redistribution", especially for commercial purposes. This impacts RDA datasets ds628.0, ds628.1, ds628.2, ds628.3 and ds628.4 (JRA-55, JRA-55C, JRA-55AMIP). The new conditions are as follows:

Definitions

The term “datasets” shall refer to all or part of JRA-55 products issued by JMA and any copies thereof.

The term “redistribution” shall refer to the provision of the datasets from one user to another or others.
