Differences between Flexible Array and PASSCAL Experiment when archiving

For Flexible Array experiments, the Data Group at IRIS/PASSCAL shares responsabilities with the Principal Investigator(s) for the archiving of their data as with PASSCAL experiments, however instead of the fully processed data in the required format (seed or hdf5) and dataless provided by PI on a PASSCAL Experiment, The PI and his team in a Flexible Array submit all the raw data and information needed to generate the metadata at PASSCAL.
