  • Data from the Upper Troposphere Lower Stratosphere (UTLS) programme's round 1 research project "Dynamics and Chemistry of Frontal Zones" (DCFZ). DCFZ investigated the role of frontal shear zones in determining upper tropospheric chemical distributions. This dataset contains Chilbolton radar images.

  • The Icelandic Volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, started erupting on 14th April 2010. The volcanic ash cloud produced covered much of Northern Europe for several weeks causing extensive disruption to air travel. The UK and European atmospheric communities had many instruments - both airborne and ground-based, remote sensing and in-situ - taking measurements of the ash cloud throughout this period. This dataset contains Leosphere and Halo Doppler Lidar images from the Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire.

  • The Cloud and Water Vapour Experiment (CWAVE) was a measurement campaign at the CCLRC-Chilbolton Observatory; it was supporting associated with two EC FP5 projects, CLOUDMAP2 and CLOUDNET. A wide range of satellite and ground based instruments measured a variety of atmospheric properties ranging from cloud parameters to water vapour. In addition, the measurements coincided with the results from a reduced resolution Unified Model (UM) run by the Met Office.

  • The Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP) aimed to further the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the initiation of precipitating convection in the maritime environment of southern England; i.e. to understand why convective clouds form and develop into precipitating clouds in a particular location. Data have been collected from the 13th June 2005 to the 25th August 2005 by the Ultra-violet Raman lidar at Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements of attenuated backscatter coefficients of aerosols within the atmosphere, and humidity mixing ratios. Plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient, and of the humidity mixing ratios, at different heights are also available.

  • The Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP) aimed to further the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the initiation of precipitating convection in the maritime environment of southern England; i.e. to understand why convective clouds form and develop into precipitating clouds in a particular location. Data have been collected from the 6th July 2004 to the 29th July 2004 by the Ultra-violet Raman lidar at Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements of attenuated backscatter coefficients of aerosols within the atmosphere, and humidity mixing ratios. Plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient, and of the humidity mixing ratios, at different heights are also available.

  • Sky images collected by a JVC KYF55-BE digital camera over Sparsholt College, Hampshire. The data were collected from 5th of July 1996 to end of 1997 before the camera was relocated to the main Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. See the linked instrument details record (under the Process information) for subsequent data from this instrument.

  • Data were collected by the Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR) Meteorological Sensor from 2001 to present at Chilbolton, Hampshire. The standard meteorological measurements are made at Chilbolton in support of all experiments at the Observatory. The data are automatically recorded every 10 seconds from a range of different sensors. The dataset contains measurements including temperature, dew point, pressure, wind speed and wind direction.

  • Data were collected from the 12th of September 2006 to the 30th of June 2011 by the HALO photonics Doppler lidar at Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements attenuated backscatter coefficients of aerosols within the atmosphere, as well as the radial and Doppler velocity of these particles. Plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient at different heights, and of the Doppler velocity of particles are also available.

  • Data were collected from the 1st of November 2006 to the 31st of October 2010 by the HALO photonics Doppler lidar at Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements attenuated backscatter coefficients of aerosols within the atmosphere, as well as the radial and Doppler velocity of these particles. Plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient at different heights, and of the Doppler velocity of particles are also available.

  • The Sparsholt College-South Wonston water station radio links data describe signal levels of several links at a frequency of 38 Ghz, which covered a path of 5km from the South Wonston water tower near the A34 to Sparsholt College. The data were collected between October 2002 and April 2005. The radio link between Sparsholt college and the Wonston water tower is used to investigate the effects of rain and sleet on radio signals.
