  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Watnall station from 2000 to 2013. 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 Met Office field site near Camborne, Cornwall from 1990 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.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Aberporth airfield, Mid Wales from 1990 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. An ASCII formatted set of files are also available from 1990 to 2000 within this dataset.

  • A Vaisala Radian LAP3000 1290 MHz wind profiler has been permanently located at the Met Office's site at the Dunkeswell airfield near Honiton in East Devon, and has been operational since February 1999. This was one of two such profilers deployed in the UK at that time as part of the Met Office's UK "Operational Upper Air Network." Operating at 1290 Mhz, Dunkeswell, like the other sites, is configured to operate in two modes. The low mode provides high resolution wind information up to 2km above the surface, while the high mode, with 210m resolution can see up to 8km under appropriate conditions.. The site is located at 50.87 N, 3.23 W and a height of 253 m above mean sea-level and has a WMO id of 03840. It has a beam angle of 15.5 degrees and is operated with an averaging period of 30 minutes. This dataset contains vertical wind profiles from the Vaisala Radian LAP3000 1290MHz wind profiler located at Dunkeswell.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Boulmer station, Northumbria, from 1992 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.

  • Data from the Met Office's Cyclone Database, consisting of flat files from the database covering 2000-2005 with associated charts. 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.

  • 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 South Uist station 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.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Herstmonceux station from 1992 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.

  • 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.
