  • 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.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Eskdalemuir from 1999 to 2000. 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 Woodvale station, near Liverpool, from 2000 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.

  • 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.

  • Data were collected by various stations around the globe, not covered by other datasets within this collection, and cover the period from 1900 until 2000. These data are the Met Office's 'old' Land Surface Observation data and have been superseded by the MIDAS dataset collection. This dataset remains for historic purposes only. The data contain measurements of hourly and daily meteorological values, such as rainfall, sunshine duration, temperature, and wind speed. The MIDAS dataset supersedes this dataset and new users should apply for access to that by following the on-screen instructions. If necessary, you will be able to access this historic dataset once you have been granted access to the MIDAS data. The dataset contains the measurements of the following parameters: Sunshine duration Snow depth Visibility Wind speed and wind direction Temperature Cloud type Past and present weather

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Beaufort Park airfield, Bracknell from 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.

  • Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the West Freugh station number 2 from 2001 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.
