  • This dataset contains a range of parameters from a 1 km gridded output from runs of version 3.6.1 of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model deployed on the ARCHER UK National Supercomputing Service. These runs were part of the NERC funded BBUBL project (Biotelemetry/Bio-aerial-platforms for the Urban Boundary Layer - also known as City Flocks, NERC grant award NE/N003195/1). The domain of the model runs was over the set over Birmingham conurbation for all of 2015. This geo-temporal domain encompasses measurements of the urban boundary layer obtained from instrumentation attached to birds flown around the area. See related dataset. The WRF model set up followed that used by Heaviside et al. (2015) - see linked documentation for details - and was run on the ARCHER UK National Supercomputing Service. Meteorology data from the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) ERA-interim reanalysis data for initial and lateral boundary conditions. The WRF v3.6.1 model set up implemented in this study included four nested domains. The domains had grid resolutions of 36 km x 36 km, 12 km x 12 km, 3 km x 3 km and 1 km x 1 km. The finest domain covered the West Midlands, centering over Birmingham. The multi-layer building energy parametrization (BEP) scheme with three land-use types (low-intensity residential, high-intensity residential and industrial/commercial) was also used.

  • The North Atlantic Marine Boundary Layer Experiment (NAMBLEX) campaign was conducted at Mace Head in Ireland from 24 July 2002 to 3 September 2002. During this campaign a suite of instruments, including several from the Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurements (UFAM). This dataset consists of vertical profiles of horizontal wind components plus backscatter values measured with the University of Leeds's Number 1 SODAR Instrument.

During this campaign a suite of instruments, including several from the Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurements (UFAM). This dataset consists of j(O1D) readings taken every minute from the University of Leicester's j(O1D) filter radiometer-a.

  • Chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer and the Interface with Snow (CHABLIS) is a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI) funded project, aimed at studying the chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer in greater detail, and for a longer duration, than has previously been attempted. Field measurements were carried out at the British Antarctic Survey station, Halley, at the Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab). Year-round measurements began in February 2004, and a summer campaign focussing on oxidants ran during January/February 2005, after which CHABLIS fieldwork ended. The dataset includes URG annular denuder with sodium carbonate coating, nitric acid analysed by IC data. Access to this dataset is now public.

  • HPLC with post column derivatisation data collected during the Chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer and the Interface with Snow (CHABLIS) project. CHABLIS was a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI) funded project, aimed at studying the chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer in greater detail, and for a longer duration, than has previously been attempted. Field measurements were carried out at the British Antarctic Survey station, Halley, at the Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab). Year-round measurements began in February 2004, and a summer campaign focussing on oxidants ran during January/February 2005, after which CHABLIS fieldwork ended. The dataset includes mixing ratios (Ozone, CO, HCHO, NO2, and HONO), accumulation and isotope (Na, K, Mg, Ca, F, CH4, Cl, and NO3) concentrations of snow, and meteorological measurements (relative humidity, visibility, dew point, wind speed, and wind direction). Access to this dataset is now public.

  • Data from the Met Office's 915 MHz LAP3000 UHF (Ultra High Frequency) boundary layer wind profiler deployed at the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar Facility, Capel Dewi, near Aberystwyth in West Wales. The instrument was deployed from February 1995 to March 2002. These data are made available under the NERC-Met Office agreement.
