WCRP CMIP5: The EC-EARTH Consortium's EC-EARTH model output for the 10-year hindcast/prediction initialized in year 2000 (decadal2000) experiment. These data cover the following realms: atmos, land, ocean and seaIce; at the following frequencies: day and mon. The runs included the ensemble members: r10i1p1, r10i2p1, r1i1p1, r2i1p1, r3i1p1, r4i1p1, r5i1p1, r6i1p1, r7i1p1, r8i1p1, r8i2p1 and r9i1p1. The WCRP Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 5 (CMIP5), was a global climate model intercomparison project, coordinated by PCMDI (Program For Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison) on behalf of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and provided input for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report (AR5). For details of the EC-EARTH Consortium members please see the linked reference to the EC-EARTH Consortium website on this record.
The EUSTACE (EU Surface Temperature for All Corners of Earth) project is an EU Horizon 2020 project, producing daily estimates of surface air temperature since 1850 across the globe for the first time, by combining surface and satellite data using novel statistical techniques. The data are publically available and consists of a number of different products: satellite skin temperature retrievals over all surface types; global surface air temperature derived from satellite skin temperature retrievals; homogonised surface meteorological station records for Europe and a European in filled analysis; global surface meteorological station records with discontinuities identified; and global analyses of daily surface air temperature going back to 1850, derived from both satellite and meteorological station data.
This dataset contained a variety of forecast data from ECMWF, which supported observation campaigns. The variables, geo-temporal extent and other aspects were different for each campaign supported. The project supported were: adient, catlin, cloudmap2, crose, troccinox, itop, plume, slimcat, torch and vintersol. These data are no longer relevant, and were not reusable due the very specific access conditions that applied to each project.

Projected regional average change in seasonal and annual mean temperature and precipitation for the IPCC SREX regions for CMIP5 and CMIP3. The data were produced in 2014 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II (WGII) Chapter 21 author team for the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). Regional average seasonal and annual mean temperature and precipitation for the period 2071-2100 are compared to a baseline of 1961-1990 for CMIP5 and CMIP3 General Circulation Model (GCM) projections. The data compare the range of projections from 35 Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) ensemble under four Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios compared with GCM projections from 22 CMIP3 ensemble under three Special Report on Emission Scenarios (SRES) scenarios. Regional averages are based on SREX regions defined by the IPCC Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (IPCC, 2012: also known as "SREX").
Global Coordination of Atmospheric Electricity Measurements (GloCAEM) project brought these experts together to make the first steps towards an effective global network for FW atmospheric electricity monitoring by holding workshops to discuss measurement practises and instrumentation, as well as establish recording and archiving procedures to archive electric field data in a standardised, easily accessible format, then by creating a central data repository. This project was funded in the UK under NERC grant NE/N013689/1. This dataset contains measurements of atmospheric electricity and electric potential gradient made using a Cambell Scientific CS110 electric-field mill at Alentejo Evora.
The Brazil-UK Network for Investigation of Amazonian Atmospheric Composition and Impacts on Climate (BUNIAACIC) collaboration was a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project (NE/I030178/1) This project aimed to develop a coherent strategy for UK studies of atmospheric composition and impacts in the Amazon. This dataset contains humidity and aerosol measurements from the Manchester Hygroscopicity Tandem Differential Mobility Analyser (man-htdma)
This dataset contains zonal-mean model-generated and diagnosed heating rates as potential temperature tendencies on pressure levels. The model-generated heating rates consist of total heating rates due to parameterized physics along with heating rates due to long-wave and short-wave radiative transfer, as generated during the model forecast step. The diagnosed heating rates are calculated from the zonal-mean atmospheric diagnostics (Zonal-mean reanalyses on pressure levels dataset) according to the zonal-mean thermodynamic equation. All heating rates are provided 6-hourly on identical horizontal and vertical grids as the dynamical variables included in Zonal-mean reanalyses on pressure levels dataset. However, the time axis of this dataset lags that of Zonal-mean reanalyses on pressure levels dataset by three hours. This dataset was produced to facilitate the comparison of reanalysis datasets for the collaborators of the SPARC- Reanalysis Intercomparison Project (S-RIP). The dataset is substantially smaller in size compared to the full three dimensional reanalysis fields and uses unified numerical methods. The dataset includes all global reanalyses available at the time of its development and will be extended to new reanalysis products in the future.
This dataset contains humidity and temperature profiles from the NCAS Humidity And Temperature PROfilers (HATPRO) scanning radiometer on board the Alliance research vessel for the Iceland Greenland seas Project (IGP). The Iceland Greenland seas Project (IGP) was an international project involving the UK, US a Norwegian research communities. The UK component was funded by NERC, under the Atmospheric Forcing of the Iceland Sea (AFIS) project (NE/N009754/1)
The Brazil-UK Network for Investigation of Amazonian Atmospheric Composition and Impacts on Climate (BUNIAACIC) collaboration was a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project (NE/I030178/1) This project aimed to develop a coherent strategy for UK studies of atmospheric composition and impacts in the Amazon. This dataset contains measurements from the Aerodyne Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor operated by Universidade de Sao Paulo (USP-ACSM)
