  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Stornoway station from 1990 to 2001. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Lerwick station, Shetland Islands, from 1999 to present. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.

  • Synoptic charts from the Met Office's Cyclone Database, constructed from output stored in the database covering 2000-2005. The database holds lists of cyclones, their types and structural information about each cyclone and associated features as derived from analysis of the UK Met Office Unified Model. Database raw data available in its own dataset within this collection.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Hillsborough station from 1990 to 2002. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Crawley station, near London, from 1990 to 1991. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.

  • The Met Office deployed a Vaisala Radian LAP3000 915 MHz wind profiler at the Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) Mesophere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar Facility site at Capel Dewi, near Absersywyth, Wales, from November 1999 to March 2002. This deployment was to co-locate this UHF boundary layer wind profiler with the NERC MST VHF wind profiling radar - giving a combined coverage between the two instruments from around 300m to 20 km. At the time the Met Office's 915 Mhz wind profiler was an integral part of the Met Office's UK "Operational Upper Air Network", providing high resolution wind information from just above the surface (around 300m) up to a maximum of 8 km, depending on the atmospheric conditions. The Capel Dewi site is located at 52.42 N, 4.01 W and a height of 92 m above mean sea-level. The site has a WMO id of 03501. The instrument's hight resolution is 60/200 m depending on the operational mode. It has a beam angle of 15.0 degrees and is operated with an averaging period of 30 minutes. This instrument was subsequently deployed at South Uist and then at its present location on the Isle of Man. This dataset contains vertical wind profiles from the Vaisala Radian LAP3000 915MHz wind profiler located at Capel Dewi.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Dunkerswell station from November 1999. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.

  • The Met Office installed a Vaisala Radian LAP3000 915 MHz wind profiler near Meary Veg close to the Ronaldsway Aiport on the Isle of Man in 2005, relocating the instrument from its former deployment on South Uist which itself followed a deployment at the MST radar site at Capel Dewi near Aberystwyth. The deployment on the Isle of Man was an integral part of the Met Office's UK "Operational Upper Air Network." Operating at 915 Mhz, it provides high resolution wind information from just above the surface (around 300m) up to a maximum of 8 km, depending on the atmospheric conditions. The site is located at 54.26 N, 4.37 W and a height of 55 m above mean sea-level and has a WMO id of 03203. The instrument's hight resolution is 60/200 m depending on the operational mode. It has 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 Vaisala Radian LAP3000 915MHz wind profiler located at the Isle of Man.

  • The Met Office deployed a Vaisala Radian LAP3000 915 MHz wind profiler at the Met Office's meteorological station on the South Uist range, Hebredies, from January 2003 to July 2004. This deployment was ahead of the installation of the Met Office's 64 MHz Stratosphere-Troposphere (ST) radar at the same site and provided a period of colocated measurements from the two instruments from May to July 2004. At the time the Met Office's 915 Mhz wind profiler was an integral part of the Met Office's UK "Operational Upper Air Network", providing high resolution wind information from just above the surface (around 300m) up to a maximum of 8 km, depending on the atmospheric conditions. The South Uist site is located at 57.353 N, 7.375 W and a height of 4 m above mean sea-level. The site has a WMO id of 03019. The instrument's hight resolution is 60/200 m depending on the operational mode. It has a beam angle of 15.0 degrees and is operated with an averaging period of 30 minutes. This instrument had been previously deployed at the Capel Dewi site near Aberystwyth and was subsequently deployed to its present location on the Isle of Man in 2005. This dataset contains vertical wind profiles from the Vaisala Radian LAP3000 915MHz wind profiler located at South Uist.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Mount Pleasant station, Falkland Islands, from 1999 to present. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.
