  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A445 for research purposes.

  • This dataset contains daily monthly average T159 spherical harmonics gridded, potential temperature level, analysis timestep data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Re-Analysis (ERA) 40 program from January 1958 to December 2001. ERA-40 followed on from the ERA-15 re-analysis project. Access limited to UK based academic researchers only. These data are GRIB formatted.

  • Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III) was an instrument on board a Meteor-3M spacecraft, launched on December 10, 2001. Routine measurement operations began in March 2002 until the SAGE III mission was terminated in March 2006. The specific measurement objectives of SAGE III provide 1 km vertical resolution profiles of: aerosols and clouds at seven wavelengths from the mid-troposphere into the stratosphere and where appropriate, the mesosphere; O3 from the mid-troposphere to 85 km; H2O from the planetary boundary layer to 50 km; NO2 from the tropopause to 45 km; NO3 from 20 to 55 km; OClO from 15 to 25 km; and, O2 from the mid-troposphere to 70 km. This dataset contains level 1B version 3 transmission profiles. The Level 1B Transmission product contains the SAGE III atmospheric slant path transmission profiles at 87 spectral channels. The profiles are skewed vertically and extend from sea level to an altitude of 100 km in 0.5 km intervals. The standard deviation of the binned transmission data is also provided for each reported altitude and channel. These data have been geolocated and normalized against exoatmospheric solar measurements to produce slant path transmission profiles.

  • The University of Aberystwyth mobile ozone lidar data contain measurements of ozone mixing ratios and aerosol information. The data were collected at Chilbolton observatory, Hampshire on the 7th and the 8th of June 2005. The data collected on the 7th of June 2005 are of ozone mixing ratios only. The data collected on the 8th of June 2005 are of ozone mixing ratios, aerosol backscatter, and boundary layer height information.

  • The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) was an instrument aboard ERS-2. The main scientific objective of the GOME mission is to measure the global distribution of ozone and several trace gases which play an important role in the ozone chemistry of the Earth's stratosphere and troposphere, for example, NO2, BrO, OClO, and SO2. This dataset contains version 1.2 ozone profiles derived by the Remote Sensing Group (RSG) at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire, UK, as part of the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO). These were derived from radiances measured by the GOME on-board ERS-2. The collection also includes total column ozone, column BrO, and column NO2 as well as cloud heights derived from the Along Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR), which are included to aid interpretation of the ozone profiles.

  • Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III) was an instrument on board a Meteor-3M spacecraft, launched on December 10, 2001. Routine measurement operations began in March 2002 until the SAGE III mission was terminated in March 2006. The specific measurement objectives of SAGE III provide 1 km vertical resolution profiles of: aerosols and clouds at seven wavelengths from the mid-troposphere into the stratosphere and where appropriate, the mesosphere; O3 from the mid-troposphere to 85 km; H2O from the planetary boundary layer to 50 km; NO2 from the tropopause to 45 km; NO3 from 20 to 55 km; OClO from 15 to 25 km; and, O2 from the mid-troposphere to 70 km. This dataset contains level 2 version 3 solar species profiles of aerosols, ozone, water vapour, nitrogen dioxide, temperature and pressure. The Level 2 Solar Species products are produced from the Level 1B Transmission profiles by using algorithms.

  • ERA-40 was a European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) global atmospheric reanalysis project covering the period September 1957 to August 2002. This follows on from the ERA-15 re-analysis project. The dataset includes data on surface, PV, potential temperature and pressure surfaces. Model level data available as GRIB formatted data on spectral and reduced Gaussian grids. Access limited to UK based academic researchers only

  • Datasets of 5 day back trajectories have been computed on a routine basis using analyses from the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF). The three components of the wind and surface pressure over three launch grids covering the UK, the mid-Atlantic storm track region and the eastern USA, plus back trajectories from field campaign instrument sites were used to output datasets consisting of latitude, longitude and pressure of the trajectory every 30 minutes. This dataset contains ECMWF trajectories model data for 1997.

  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A313 for research purposes.

  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A658 for the UTLS-Ozone project. The location of the flight was over the Irish Sea and Wales in the vicinity of the MST radar at Aberystwyth and west of Chilbolton Radar.
