  • This dataset consists of a range of ecological measurements collected from a set of arable fields, each sown with a combination of genetically modified and conventional maize crops. Measurements include species counts in the following areas: weed seedbank, vegetation in the crop, field edge vegetation, invertebrates. The data were collected as part of the Farm Scale Evaluations (FSEs), a four-year programme of research by independent researchers aimed at studying the effect that the management practices associated with Genetically Modified Herbicide Tolerant (GMHT) crops might have on farmland wildlife, when compared with weed control used with non-GM crops. Data were collected by a consortium of: the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (now the Centre for Ecology &Hydrology), the Institute of Arable Crops Research (now Rothamsted Research) and the Scottish Crop Research Institute (now the James Hutton Institute). Data were collected for four crops overall (Beet, Maize, Spring-sown Oilseed Rape and Winter-sown oilseed Rape).

  • This dataset consists of farm management data which includes crop drilling dates and herbicide application dates. The data relate to arable fields in which a range of ecological measurements were collected, including species counts in the following areas: weed seedbank, vegetation in the crop, field edge vegetation, invertebrates. Each field was sown with a combination of genetically modified and conventional crops, either Beet, Maize, Spring-sown Oilseed Rape or Winter-sown oilseed Rape. The data were collected as part of the Farm Scale Evaluations (FSEs), a four-year programme of research by independent researchers aimed at studying the effect that the management practices associated with Genetically Modified Herbicide Tolerant (GMHT) crops might have on farmland wildlife, when compared with weed control used with non-GM crops. Data were collected by a consortium of: the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, ITE (now the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, CEH), the Institute of Arable Crop Research (now Rothamstead Research, IACR) and the Scottish Crop Research Institute, SCRI (now the James Hutton Institute, JHI). Data were collected for four crops overall (Beet, Maize, Spring-sown Oilseed Rape and Winter-sown oilseed Rape).

  • This data set includes records of soil fauna sampled from the Sourhope experimental site in July and October 2002, and April, June and October 2003. These include collembola, spiders, slugs and beetles and a range of invertebrates captured by a variety of methods. Data were collected during a project funded under the NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme. The NERC Soil Biodiversity Thematic Programme was established in 1999 and was centred upon the intensive study of a large field experiment located at the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute (now the James Hutton Institute) farm at Sourhope in the Scottish Borders (Grid reference: NT8545019630). During the experiment, the site was monitored to assess changes in above-ground biomass production (productivity), species composition and relative abundance (diversity).

  • The International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project, Initiative II (ISLSCP II) is a follow on project from The International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP). ISLSCP II had the lead role in addressing land-atmosphere interactions - process modelling, data retrieval algorithms, field experiment design and execution, and the development of global data sets. The ISLSCP II dataset contains comprehensive data over the 10 year period from 1986 to 1995, from the International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP). This dataset contains: *precipitation *temperature *diurnal temperature range *wet-day frequency *vapour pressure *cloud cover *ground frost frequency The data are mapped to consistent grids (0.5 x 0.5 degrees for topography, 1 x 1 degrees for meteorological parameters). Some data have a grid size of 0.25 x 0.25 degrees. The temporal resolution for most data sets is monthly (however a few are at finer resolution - 3 hourly). This dataset is public.

  • Data were collected by Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement's (UFAM) 1290mhz Degreane Mobile Wind Profiler, deployed at the Writtle Agriculture College, Essex, in August 2003 as part of the Tropospheric ORganic CHemistry Experiment Project (TORCH) 1 field campaign. During the field campaign the mobile wind profiler obtained vertical profiles of the horizontal and vertical wind components. For each signal beam profiles of the signal to noise (SNR) ratio and spectral widths were also taken. The data consist of files available in the NASA-AMES ASCII and netCDF binary formats and plots in PNG format. Data are available to all BADC registered users under the Government Open Data licence.

  • The Met Office's 64 MHz ST (stratosphere-troposphere) wind profiler was installed at the Met Office South Uist range meteorological station, Hebrides, in May 2003. The radar complements the MST radar located near Abersywyth, providing greater vertical coverage than the other wind profiling radars in the Met Office's UK "Operational Upper Air Network." Operating at 64 Mhz, the South Uist 64 Mhz radar runs typically sounds from 1 to 13 km with a heigh resolution of either 150 or 400m, depending on the mode of operation. The site is located at 57.353 N, 7.375 W and at a height of 4 m above mean sea-level and has a WMO id of 03019. It had a beam angle of 15.0 degrees and is operated with an averaging period of 30 minutes. This dataset contains vertical wind profiles from the 64MHz wind profiler located at Camborne.

  • Sky images collected by a JVC KYF55-BE digital camera over Chilbolton, Hampshire. The data were collected from 5th of July 1996 to the present.

  • Data have been collected from the 4th of April 2002 to the present by the Ultra-violet Raman lidar at Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements of attenuated backscatter coefficients of aerosols within the atmosphere, and humidity mixing ratios. Plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient, and of the humidity mixing ratios, at different heights are also available.
