  • 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 j(O1D) readings taken every minute from the University of Leicester's j(O1D) filter radiometer-a.

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.

  • 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. This dataset contains full met data set taken from mast near to Simpson platform at Halley, cloud data from MOMU observer's log at Halley, and snow accumulation at Halley, for the period February 2004 to February 2005. Access to this dataset is now public.

  • 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. Fieldwork was carried out at the new Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab) at Halley station . The team from UK universities and the British Antarctic Survey brought to the project a suite of state-of-the-art instruments and models and a track record of successfully running major campaigns together in remote locations. The field campaign started during the austral summer in January 2004 and continued throughout the winter culminating with an intensive study during the summer of 04/05. Major foci for CHABLIS included detailed studies of seasonal oxidant chemistry, annual variation in the boundary layer NOy budget and elucidating air/snow transfer processes. 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.

  • This dataset collection contains data from the ISB52 Improved Air Quality Forecasting project. The aim of the project was to develop a better understanding of air flow within the atmospheric boundary layer by gathering 3-dimensional air flow information using two identical Doppler lidars. The project compared parameters derived from the dual Doppler lidar measurements with inputs used in the UK Met Office air quality forecasting model. Field experiments were undertaken in March 2003 at Malvern and in July 2003 at RAF Northolt, West London, UK.

  • 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.
