  • The UK's Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) National Centre for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAS) operates a suite of instrumentation to monitor the atmospheric dynamics and composition of the atmosphere. This dataset brings together all the long term routine observations made by NCAS instruments covering surface based instruments as well as remote sensing instruments such as radars and lidars. Some of the instruments may also be deployed elsehwere on field campaigns, for which the data will be available under the associated field campaign dataset. Links are also available to pages describing the instruments from which links to all data from that particular instrument can be found. The dataset contains the following measurements: Eastward wind velocity component Northward wind velocity component Upward air velocity Direction the wind is from Signal to noise ratio Altitude of instrument above the ground Longitude of instrument Latitude of instrument Spectral width

  • The University of Wales, Aberystwyth 1290 MHz mobile wind profiler, deployed as part of a suite of instrument from Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurements (UFAM), was sited at Linkenholt, Hampshire, UK, for the duration of the Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP)'s main field campaign. The instrument was operated throughout the campaign, producing vertical profiles of wind speed and direction (horizontal and vertical components), signal to noise ratio and spectral width measurements from 2nd June to 1st September 2005. This instrument is now referred to as the University of Manchester mobile wind profiler (man-radar-1290mhz).

  • The DIAMET project aimed to better the understanding and prediction of mesoscale structures in synoptic-scale storms. Such structures include fronts, rain bands, secondary cyclones, sting jets etc, and are important because much of the extreme weather we experience (e.g. strong winds, heavy rain) comes from such regions. Weather forecasting models are able to capture some of this activity correctly, but there is much still to learn. By a combination of measurements and modelling, mainly using the Met Office Unified Model (UM), the project worked to better understand how mesoscale processes in cyclones give rise to severe weather and how they can be better represented in models and better forecast. This dataset contains wind profile measurements which were taken by the Facility for Ground-based Atmospheric Measurements' (FGAM) 1290 MHz Degreane Mobile Wind Profiler, operated by the University of Manchester,as part of the DIAMET (Diabatic influences on mesoscale structures in extratropical storms) project from 9th August 2011 to 17th February 2012. During this period the instrument was deployed at the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar Facility, Capel Dewi, UK. These data are available in netCDF and include wind speed, wind direction, signal to noise ratio and spectral width.
