  • This dataset contains weekly volatile organic compounds (VOCs) measurements from the Little Plumpton site. British Geological Survey (BGS), the universities of Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and York and partners from Public Health England (PHE) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), are conducting an independent environmental baseline monitoring programme near Kirby Misperton, North Yorkshire and Little Plumpton, Lancashire. These are areas where planning permission has been granted for hydraulic fracturing. The monitoring allows the characterisation of the environmental baseline before any hydraulic fracturing and gas exploration or production takes place in the event that planning permission is granted. The investigations are independent of any monitoring carried out by the industry or the regulators, and information collected from the programme will be made freely available to the public. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you use these data, please note the requirement to acknowledge use.

  • Isoprene flux and concentration measurements made from Auchencorth Moss during the summer of 2015. Isoprene concentrations were measured using a proton transfer reaction mass spectrometer (PTR-MS) and fluxes were calculated using the eddy covariance technique. The dataset includes the supporting meteorology including air temperature, photosynthetically active radiation, wind speed, wind direction, friction velocity, sensible heat flux.

  • The dataset contains concentrations of nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2, collectively NOx) and ozone (O3), frequencies of insect pollinators and flower visits and yield metrics of Brassica nigra plants collected from within eight field-based fumigation rings located at the University of Reading's Sonning Farm, UK.

  • 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.
