  • The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) is an instrument built and operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The instrument uses backscattered ultraviolet radiance to infer total column ozone measurements. The data consists of daily gridded averages of total ozone covering the entire globe. The original Nimbus-7 TOMS operated from November 1978 until May 1993. Meteor-3 TOMS was launched in August 1991 and operated until December 1994. These CDs contain the total ozone and UV radiance data.

  • The European Arctic Stratospheric Ozone Experiment is a European Commission (EC) measurement campaign undertaken in the Northern Hemisphere winter of 1991-92 to study ozone chemistry and dynamics. This dataset contains ground based measurements of column abundance of ozone.

  • This dataset consists of version 2.4 gridded surface ozone metrics for atmospheric chemistry model evaluation. These data have global coverage on both monthly and annual timescales from 1971-2015. Multiple model resolutions were used and can be easily identified within the filename. Data are stored as NetCDF-4 files, with one file per model resolution at each time resolution. The files hold gridded surface ozone data from multiple databases (WMO GAW, EPA CASTNET, EPA AQS, Canadian CAPMON, Canadian NAPS, European EMEP, European AirBase, East Asian Acid Deposition Monitoring Network EANET), plus metadata. Metrics include the moments of the distribution, percentiles, maximum daily eight-hour average (MDA8), SOMO35, AOT40, and metrics related to air quality regulatory thresholds. In addition, metadata for all contributing sites (e.g. Site name, latitude, longitude) are included in each file.

  • The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) is an instrument built and operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The instrument uses backscattered ultraviolet radiance to infer total column ozone measurements. The dataset consists of daily gridded averages of total ozone covering the entire globe, in the form of images, from NASA NIMBUS 7, Meteor-3, Earth Probe and ADEOS satellites. Data is from 1978 to 2006. The Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on the AURA spacecraft, OMI data of ozone are now available for the entire OMI mission. In addition to ozone data, OMI data for aerosol and reflectivity are available. These datasets are public.

  • This dataset consists of version 2.7 gridded surface ozone metrics for atmospheric chemistry model evaluation. These data have global coverage on both monthly and annual timescales from 1971-2015. Multiple model resolutions were used and can be easily identified within the filename. Data are stored as NetCDF-4 files, with one file per model resolution at each time resolution.

  • This dataset contains O3 fluxes measured at 75 m on GAW tower. Oxidant and Particle Photochemical Processes above a South-East Asian tropical rain forest (OP3-Danum- 08) is a 3-year Consortium Grant of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), beginning 1 October 2007. The objectives of the OP3 project are (i) to understand how emissions of reactive trace gases from a tropical rain forest mediate the production and processing of oxidants and particles in the troposphere, and (ii) to better understand the impact of these processes on local, regional and global scale atmospheric composition, chemistry and climate.

  • This dataset contains O3 concentration measurements. Oxidant and Particle Photochemical Processes above a South-East Asian tropical rain forest (OP3-Danum-08) is a 3-year Consortium Grant of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), beginning 1 October 2007. The objectives of the OP3 project are (i) to understand how emissions of reactive trace gases from a tropical rain forest mediate the production and processing of oxidants and particles in the troposphere, and (ii) to better understand the impact of these processes on local, regional and global scale atmospheric composition, chemistry and climate.

  • Bodeker Scientific produced a global combined monthly mean vertical ozone profile database spanning the period 1979 to 2007. The database is completely filled such that there are no missing data. This database is used for assessing or constraining global climate model simulations. These data held at CEDA are a copy from Bodeker Scientific taken on November 2012.

  • Measurements were made using the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft throughout the troposphere in the locality of the Tropospheric Organic Chemistry (TORCH) field campaign in Writtle, Essex to determine the influence of regional transport and local chemistry on ozone concentrations. The Production of Ozone of South-east England (POSE) project aimed to further the understanding of the factors governing ozone chemistry during summer periods in the UK. In particular, the relative sources of ozone: general Northern Hemisphere background, regionally produced products and local/in situ generation. The transport of pollutants from Europe within the boundary layer has been implicated in the very high levels of ozone seen in the UK during summer 2003. During the TORCH field campaign in Writtle, Essex, high levels of ozone and other reactive species were seen during the 2003 heatwave, and results suggest that this may be a result of mixing down of polluted air from aloft during the collapse of the night-time shallow inversion layer to form the day time boundary layer. In order to better understand this behaviour, the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft perfomed a series of profiles close to the Writtle site, to determine the influence of regional transport and local chemistry on ozone concentrations. Measurements included CO, ozone, hydrocarbons and oxygenated VOCs, throughout the troposphere.

  • UTLS-OZONE was a NERC directed mode programme funding projects to study the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. The particular emphasis was on the processes determining the distribution of ozone and any subsequent climate impacts. Two UTLS Ozone projects were based on airborne campaigns using the FAAM aircraft, namely ITOP-UK and CIRRUS. This dataset contains ozonesonde and LIDAR ozone profiles measured by the Aberystwyth group in support of the UTLS-OZONE projects: * Dynamics and Chemistry of Frontal Zones (DCFZ) (PI: Keith Browning, Department of Meteorology, University of Reading) * Atmospheric Chemistry and Transport of Ozone (ACTO) (PI: Stuart Penkett, School of the Environment, University of East Anglia) * the Egrett experiment (PI: Jim Whiteway, University of Wales at Aberystwyth) * "Night-Time Chemistry in the UTLS Region" (PI: Hugh Coe, University of Manchester) and of the EU project TRACAS.
