Cloud droplet number concentration, calculated from the MODIS (Moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer) cloud optical properties retrieval and gridded using different sampling strategies
This dataset contains cloud droplet number concentrations (CDNC), gridded to 1 by 1 degree resolution using a variety of sampling methods to select valid retrievals. Data from the MODIS (Moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer) instruments on both the Terra (morning overpass) and Aqua (Afternoon overpass) satellites are available (indicated by a T or A in the filename). This product is gridded using the MODIS collection 6 definition of a day. These sampling methods have been compared against multiple flight campaigns, see Gryspeerdt et al., The impact of sampling strategy on the cloud droplet number concentration estimated from satellite data. Atmos. Meas. Tech. 2022." Errata: The latitude values in these files are currently inverted, resulting in the data in the files appearing 'upside-down'. As a work-around, the data arrays can be reversed along the latitude axis. Corrected versions of the files will be uploaded shortly.'
Trace metal mobilisation data (pH, ALK, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Li, SO4, Si, Be, Mn, Fe, Zn, Cu, Al,Sr, Be, Ba, Y,Co, Ni, B, Rb, Y, Cd, Sb, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, Nd, Pb, Th, U) for the River Carnon, the River Fal (downstream) and its estuary in Cornwall following discharge of highly polluted water from the Wheal Jane mine. In January 1992, there was a major pollution incident involving highly acidic wastes. CEH, in conjunction with the University of Reading monitored the River Carnon between September 1992 and April 1994, to examine the water quality.
