  • This dataset collection contains data collected from the Microbiology-Ocean-Cloud Coupling in the High Arctic (MOCCHA) project. MOCCHA aimed to study aerosol processes, the contribution of marine microbiology to their formation and properties, and their impact on the life cycle of low-lewel clouds in the central Arctic as part of the Arctic Ocean 2018 (AO2018) expedition. AO2018 took place between 1 August and 21 September 2018, departing from and returning to Longyearbyen. The expedition was centered around a 4-week long intensive observation period, where e icebreaker Oden was moored to an ice flow and drifted passively with the ice.

  • The Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP) aimed to further the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the initiation of precipitating convection in the maritime environment of southern England; i.e. to understand why convective clouds form and develop into precipitating clouds in a particular location. The project was centred on the 3 GHz (CAMRa) and 1275 clear-air (ACROBAT) radars at Chilbolton and used a number of the new UK Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) mobile instruments. This dataset includes measurements of wind speeds and wind directions and aerosol concentrations.

  • The University of Salford photograph data are digital photographs taken approximately every 30 minutes at the Faccombe wind turbine site, Hampshire. The dataset contains photographs taken on four days between the 11th of August 2005 and 25th of August 2005. The latitude and longitude of the field site is N 51°19.51’ and W 1°26.46’ respectively. Photographs were taken approximately every 30 minutes and the pictures are orientated to a bearing of 310°.

  • This dataset contains lidar radial velocity and backscatter data for vertical stare mode from the NCAS AMF Halo Doppler lidar mounted on a motion stabilised platform on board the Swedish Icebreaker Oden during the joint Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS) and Microbiology-Ocean-Cloud Coupling in the High Arctic (MOCCHA) projects. Both projects are part of the Arctic Ocean 2018 (AO2018) expedition to the High Arctic. AO2018 took place in the Arctic from 1 August until 21 September 2018. These measurements were used to complement a suite of other observations taken during the expedition. Those of the UK contribution, as well as selected other data, are available within the associated data collection in the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) archives. Other cruise data may be available in the Bolin Centre for Climate Research MOCCHA/AO2018 holdings. Data were corrected for ship motion. The raw data and detailed instrument information can be obtained from the AMF archive at CEDA. The UK participation of MOCCHA was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC, grant: NE/R009686/1) and involved instrumentation from the Atmospheric Measurement Facility (AMF) of the UK's National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS AMF).

  • Observations of Wind Velocity, Wind Direction, Temperature, Heat Flux and Momentum Flux measured by the sonic anemometer instrument at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC.

  • This dataset contains composite lidar wind profile data from the NCAS AMF Halo Doppler lidar mounted on a motion stabilised platform on board the Swedish Icebreaker Oden during the joint Arctic Climate Across Scales (ACAS) and Microbiology-Ocean-Cloud Coupling in the High Arctic (MOCCHA) projects - both part of the Arctic Ocean 2018 (AO2018) expedition to the High Arctic. AO2018 took place in the Arctic from 1 August until 21 September 2018. These measurements were used to complement a suite of other observations taken during the expedition. Those of the UK contribution, as well as selected other data, are available within the associated data collection in the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) archives. Other cruise data may be available in the Bolin Centre for Climate Research MOCCHA/AO2018 holdings. Wind profiles are derived from a motion stabilised HALO Photonics Doppler lidar using 6-beam Velocity-Azimuth-Display (VAD) scans at two fixed elevations, 30° and 75°. Data are available only where the backscatter signal to noise ratio is better than -16dB, lidar internal QC checks and quality criteria for the VAD algorithm are all passed. Each profile is derived from 6 2-second dwell beams. Wind profiles were measured every 15 minutes, with 2 consecutive scans at 30 and 75°, 30 sec apart. The consecutive scans were merged into one wind profile with a vertical resolution of 10 m using a normalised weighted mean function. Documentation & validation of the motion stabilisation and derived winds can be found in: Achtert P, Brooks IM, Brooks BJ, Moat BI, Prytherch J, Persson POG, Tjernström M (2015) Measurement of wind profiles by motion-stabilised ship-borne Doppler lidar, Atmospheric Measurement Techniques, 8, 4993-5007. doi: 10.5194/amt-8-4993-2015" ; The UK participation of MOCCHA was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC, grant: NE/R009686/1) and involved instrumentation from the Atmospheric Measurement Facility of the UK's National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS AMF).

  • Longterm measurements of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide at Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) using a Siemens NDIR instrument operated by the NCAS (National Centre for Atmospheric Science) AMF (Atmospheric Measurement Facility). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC.

  • The dataset contains the data collected by radiosondes, released by IMK, in both Bath and Chilbolton, during the period from the 19th of June 2005 to the 25th of August 2005. The datset contains measurements of: The dataset contains measurements of: Height above sea level (m) Time since midnight (s) Time since midnight (hh:mm:ss) Height above ground (m) Dry-bulb temperature (degree Celsius) Relative Humidity (percentage) Wind speed (m/s) Wind direction (degree true) Pressure (hPa) Potential Temperature (degree Kelvin) Dew-point temperature (degree Celsius) Specific humidity (g/kg) Saturation mixing ratio (g/kg) u-component of wind velocity (m/s) v-component of wind velocity (m/s)

  • 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.

  • Longterm observations (2002-present) of atmospheric chemistry parameters have been made at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) including ozone, carbon monoxide and dulphur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and cloud condensation nuclei. WAO is an NCAS facility and part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA). It is situated on the north Norfolk coast and is a world class facility for fundamental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC. The WAO has also been the focus of many international experiments designed to into the chemistry of the planetary boundary layer and free troposphere.
