  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A646 for the UTLS-Ozone Dynamics and Chemistry of Frontal Zones (DCFZ) project. The location of the flight was over the Irish Sea and Wales in the vicinity of the MST radar at Aberystwyth and west of Chilbolton Radar.

  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A647 for the UTLS-Ozone project.

  • Level 2 data (vertical columns of trace gases) from the SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY (SCIAMACHY). SCHIAMACHY was one of the ten instruments on-board the Envisat satellite launched from Kourou (French Guyana) on the 28th of February 2002. Envisat was operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) until May 2012. SCIAMACHY was used to provide global measurements of trace gases in the troposphere and the stratosphere. These data are calculated using the radiance observations and known absorption spectra of such gases. Fully reprocessed Level 2 data is available, with samples of near-real-time (nrt) and consolidated (result of a first processing by ESA to eliminate bad data and perform a few basic checks) data.

  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A254.

  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A259 for research purposes.

  • Cascade was a NERC funded consortium project to study organized convection and scale interactions in the tropical atmosphere using large domain cloud system resolving model simulations. This dataset contains data from the xeydaa simulation which ran using the Met Office Unified Model (UM) at 1.5km horizontal resolution over the domain 20W-20E, 5S-28N which encompasses the west african monsoon. Cascade Africa simulations are used to study African Easterly Waves. This dataset contains 1.5km Africa model measurements from xeydaa run.

  • The gridded Climatic Research Unit (CRU) Time-series (TS) data version 4.01 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2016, provided on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by CRU at the University of East Anglia. The CRU TS4.01 variables are cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, frost day frequency, potential evapotranspiration (PET), precipitation, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily maximum and minimum temperature, and vapour pressure for the period January 1901 - December 2016. The CRU TS4.01 data were produced using angular-distance weighting (ADW) interpolation. All version 3 releases used triangulation routines in IDL. Please see the release notes for full details of this version update. CRU TS4.01 is a full release, differing only in methodology from the parallel release, v3.25. Both are released concurrently to support comparative evaluations between these two versions, however, this will be the last release of version 3. The CRU TS4.01 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data calculated from daily or sub-daily data by National Meteorological Services and other external agents. The ASCII and NetCDF data files both contain monthly mean values for the various parameters. The NetCDF versions contain an additional integer variable, ’stn’, which provides, for each datum in the main variable, a count (between 0 and 8) of the number of stations used in that interpolation. The missing value code for 'stn' is -999. All CRU TS output files are actual values - NOT anomalies.

  • Cascade was a NERC funded consortium project to study organized convection and scale interactions in the tropical atmosphere using large domain cloud system resolving model simulations. This dataset contains data from the xewwa simulation which ran using the Met Office Unified Model (UM) at 12km horizontal resolution over an idealised equatorial domain of about 8000x4000km. Cascade Idealised simulations are used to study warm pool convection and equatorial waves.

  • The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes. This dataset contains ARIES measurements taken onboard on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft.

  • Cascade was a NERC funded consortium project to study organized convection and scale interactions in the tropical atmosphere using large domain cloud system resolving model simulations. The xfncl simulation was made using the Met Office Unified Model (UM) at 1.5km resolution over the domain 40E-183E, 22S-22N which encompasses the Indian Ocean West Pacific Warm Pool. Cascade Warm Pool simulations coincide with the Year of Tropical Convection. This dataset contains Warm Pool 1.5km model measurements from xfncl run.
