  • Tropospheric ORganic CHemistry Experiment (TORCH) was a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Polluted Troposphere Research Programme project (Round 1 - NER/T/S/2002/00145. Duration 2002 - 2005) led by A. Lewis, University of York. TORCH 1 took place in July and August 2003 at Writtle College, near Chelmsford, Essex. This dataset contains relative humidity measurements from the University of Leicester's Rotronic MP103A temperature sensor.

Duration 2002 - 2005) led by A. Lewis, University of York. TORCH 2 took place in April and May 2004 at Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory, on the north Norfolk coast. This dataset contains temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction measurements taken using Campbell Scientific basic weather station.

  • The file contain data for local meteorology , soil and cave temperatures and groundwater drip rates measured in sea Michaels and Ragged Staff caves, Gibraltar. Meteorological data were recorded at the RAF Meteorological Office located 3 km away from the cave. The locations of environmental monitoring sites are described in Mattey et al. (2010) The cave monitoring, sampling and analysis program obtained data via continuous logging. Reference. MATTEY, D.P., Fairchild, I.J., Atkinson, T.C., Latin, J.P., Ainsworth, M., Durell, R., 2010.

  • The THAW (Temperature, Humidity and Winds near the Tropopause) project was led by Prof. Geraint Vaghaun (NCAS, University of Manchester) utilising a combination of vertically pointing Doppler radar data from the MST radar near Aberystwyth and a series of radiosonde and research aircraft flights in the tropopause region. The project used the FAAM BAE 146 aircraft to: • Measure fine-scale vertical temperature structure in the vicinity of the tropopause, to test a model for VHF radar reflection being developed at Manchester. • Compare wind and turbulence measurements with the MST radar, to better enable quantitative derivation of turbulence parameters from the radar echo spectra. • Characterise the performance of the Buck research CR-2 hygrometer in the upper troposphere, with special emphasis on measuring supersaturation in the vicinity of the cirrus clouds. The MST radar was operated in two modes during this period with higher vertical resolution measurements at 150 m resolution interspersed with the 300 m vertical resolution data - these are available in the standard MST radar version 3 dataset linked within this collection.

  • The dataset contains climate data (Humidity, Rainfall, Rainfall Rate, Dewpoint, Atmospheric Pressure, Temperature, Wind Direction, Wind Gust, Wind Chill, Solar Radiation, Windspeed, Heat Index, UV & UVI) at daily temporal resolution from Maplin Professional Solar Powered Wi-Fi Weather Stations installed at Munje and Galu within the study area.
