A MOSES publication is by definition a scientific / data publication that is directly related to the MOSES infrastructure:

  1. The publication is based on MOSES device tests and (test) campaigns.
  2. The investigations were carried out with MOSES devices.
  3. The investigations are accompanying theoretical work or modeling and model development, e.g. for the campaign planning or the interpretations.
