OPAL accounts are used by the Astronomy community - for details please see the OPAL Users Guide.
In the DAP, OPAL accounts are used to
- access embargoed data for ATNF Pulsar and CASDA observations where the OPAL user is a member of the project team associated with the observation
- provide an email address for large (>2GB) downloads
Data that is not embargoed is publicly available.
