  • The Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellites, operated by EUMETSAT (The European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites), provide almost continuous imagery to meteorologists and researchers in Europe and around the world. These include visible, infra-red, water vapour, High Resolution Visible (HRV) images and derived cloud top height, cloud top temperature, fog, snow detection and volcanic ash products. These images are available for a range of geographical areas. This dataset contains RGB dust images from MSG satellites over the full disc at 45.5 degrees East. Imagery available from 1000 UTC 1st June 2022 onwards at a frequency of 15 minutes (some are hourly) and are at least 24 hours old. NOTE - this dataset differs from the previous LEDF41 product produced using imagery from Meteosat-8 located at 41.5E. These new data are from Meteosat-9 which was drifted from previous operations over 3.5 E to 45.5 E between 1st February 2022 to 20th April 2022 to take over as the prime IODC (Indian Ocean Data Coverage) satellite by 1st June 2022. See linked EUMETNET web page regarding this change in operation. The Met Office switched to providing this LEDF41 product from this new satellite at 0915 UTC on 1st June 2022, this dataset. See linked datasets for previous data. These are treated as two distinct datasets due to the shift in locational coverage. The geographic extent for images within this datasets is available via the linked documentation 'MSG satellite imagery product geographic area details'. Each MSG imagery product area can be referenced from the third and fourth character of the image product name giving in the filename. E.g. for EEAO11 the corresponding geographic details can be found under the entry for area code 'AO' (i.e West Africa).

These images are available for a range of geographical areas. This dataset contains RGB dust images from MSG satellites over the full disc at 41.5 degrees East. Imagery available from November 2021 until 0900 UTC 1st June 2022 (see following note) at a frequency of 15 minutes (some are hourly) and are at least 24 hours old. NOTE - from 1st February 2022 to 20th April 2022 Meteosat-9 was drifted from 3.5 E to 45.5E at a rate of 0.5 degree a day drift to a new observation location centred over 45.5 degrees East to take over as the prime IODC (Indian Ocean Data Coverage) satellite from 30th May 2022. This role was previously by Meteosat-8, which remains in place for emergency . Data were not made available during this drifting process. The Met Office production of the LEDF41 product switched to using Meteosat-9 from 0915 UTC on 1st June 2022. See linked dataset for the replacement dataset to continue provision of this product over this region of the globe.

Each MSG imagery product area can be referenced from the third and fourth character of the image product name giving in the filename.

  • This dataset collection holds datasets from the FAAM BAe-146 aircraft and ground-based measurements taken in Cape Verde off the coast of Senegal, Africa during 2015 and 2016 in support of the UK Ice in Clouds Experiment - Dust (UK ICE-D) project.

  • This dataset contains scan data from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science's (NCAS) mobile X-band radar collected at Praia International Airport, Santiago, Cape Verde between July and August 2015 as part of the Ice in Clouds Experiment - Dust (ICE-D). The radar has Doppler and dual-polarisation capability and measures the location and intensity of precipitation, radial winds and polarisation parameters. The X-band radar is operated as part of the NCAS Atmospheric Measurement Facility (AMF).

  • This dataset is a model output from the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) model applied to the UK (EMEP4UK) driven by Weather and Research Forecast model meteorology (WRF). It provides UK estimates daily averaged atmospheric composition at approximately 5 km grid for the years 2001 to 2015. The data consists of atmospheric composition and deposition values of various pollutants; including PM10, PM2.5, secondary organic aerosols (SOA), elemental carbon (EC), secondary inorganic aerosols (SIA), sulfur dioxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3), nitrogen oxides (NOX) , and ozone (O3). The EMEP model version used here is rv4.17 and the WRF model version is the 3.7.1. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability. A version of this dataset is available (https://doi.org/10.5285/ca302d30-7b8b-46ec-90b6-67b79df00c92), run with the latest release of the Atmospheric Chemistry Transport Model EMEP (rv4.36) and with the latest NAEI emissions. The new set of model runs covers an extended time period from 2002 until 2021 and is available in a higher resolution (3 km2 x 3km2).
