  • Dual-polar products from the Met Office's Crug-y-Gorllwyn C-band rain radar, Carmarthen, Wales. Data from this site include augmented ldr (linear depolarization ratio) and zdr (differential reflectivity) scan data (both long and short pulse), available from August 2018 to present. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Single-polar products from the Met Office's Thurnham C-band rain radar, Kent, England. Data include augmented refractivity products from December 2012 to January 2013. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • 2 km resolution rain rate data from Met Office's Wardon Hill C-band rain radar, Dorset, England as part of the NIMROD, very short range forecasting system used by the Met Office. 1 km rain rate data are available from 2006 until present. Radar images from the C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar are received by the Nimrod system 5 minute intervals respectively. Please note that this radar is operated for research purposes only and thus subject to changes in operation and data are subject to interruptions. Data from the Cobbacombe Cross, Dean Hill or Jersey radars provide coverage for the same area covered by the Wardon Hill radar.

  • 2 km resolution data from the NIMROD system data describe rain-rate observations recorded by the Jersery rain radar, Channel Islands, by NIMROD, which is a very short range forecasting system used by the Met Office. 2 km rain rate data are available from 2004 until present. Radar images from the C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar are received by the Nimrod system 5 minute intervals.

  • Dual-polar products from the Met Office's Clee Hill C-band rain radar, Shropshire, England. Data from this site include augmented ldr (linear depolarisation ratio) and zdr (differential reflectivity) scan data (both long and short pulse), available from August 2018 to present. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Dual-polar products from the Met Office's Ingham C-band rain radar, Lincolnshire, England. Data from this site include augmented ldr (linear depolarisation ratio) and zdr (differential reflectivity) scan data (both long and short pulse) available from August 2018 at present. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Single-polar products from the Met Office's Jersey C-band rain radar, Channel Islands. Data include reflectivity wand Doppler products from April 2012 and May 2014 respectively. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Single-polar products from the Met Office's Ingham C-band rain radar, Lincolnshire, England. Data include reflectivity and Doppler products from May to September 2014. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Data from the NIMROD system data describe rain-rate observations in Northern Europe taken by NIMROD, which is a very short range forecasting system used by the Met Office. Composite European data are available from April 2002 until present, collected by a network of rain radars at northern European stations. Radar images from the 15 C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radars around Europe at 5 km resolution, are received by the Nimrod system at 15 minute intervals. Data products are available since April 2002, whilst image products are available from February 2003. Each file has been compressed and then stored within daily tar archive files. The precipitation rate analysis uses processed radar and satellite data, together with surface reports and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) fields. Europe has a network of 15 C-band rainfall radars and data form these are processed by the Met Office NIMROD system. The data files contain integer precipitation rates in unit of (mm/hr)*32. Each value is between 0 and 32767. In practice it is rare to see a value in excess of 4096 i.e. 128 mm/hr CEDA are not able to fulfil requests for data that are missing from this archive. The data may be available at a cost by contacting the Met Office directly with required dates. It is worth contacting CEDA first to check if the reason for the gap is already identified as being due to the data not existing at all.

  • Dual-polar products from the Met Office's Holehead C-band rain radar, Stirling, Scotland. Data from this site include augmented ldr (linear depolarisation ratio) and zdr (differential reflectivity) scan data (both long and short pulse) available from August 2018 at present. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.
