  • Active Microwave Instrument - Synthetic Aperture Radar (AMI-SAR) data from the European Remote-Sensing satellites 1 and 2 between 1995 and 1999 were acquired by the Landmap project from QinetiQ and are available for large areas of the UK. Data from the individual satellites are available, but also coherence images from when both satellites were operational and orbiting in tandem, which show the difference between two images in the time between both satellites passing over (around 1 day). The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded Landmap service which ran from 2001 to July 2014 collected and hosted a large amount of earth observation data for the majority of the UK. After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC. When using these data please also add the following copyright statement: Original ERS data ERS data copyright ESA 1999/2000 (year of acquisition).

  • The project was a QinetiQ applied research programme 3G23, funded by Ministry of Defence (MOD). The project duration was from April 2004 to March 2007. Field experiment in May 2006 was to investigate noise modelling of helicopters with regard to long range sound propagation. The trial sought to understand more fully the meteorological effects on sound propagation over a land sea interface. This dataset collection contains profiles of the radial velocity at points along the aircraft flight path and standard meteorological measurements from an automatic weather station. The Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) Doppler lidar system and automatic weather station were operated by the University of Salford.

  • The Shoeburyness Field Trial: Investigation of Meteorological Effects on the Sound Propagation from a Helicopter Operating Near a Land Sea Interface Project was a QinetiQ applied research programme 3G23, funded by Ministry of Defence (MOD). The project duration was from April 2004 to March 2007 and had the aim to investigate noise modelling of helicopters with regard to long range sound propagation. The trial sought to understand more fully the meteorological effects on sound propagation over a land sea interface. This dataset collection contains measurements from the automatic weather station, which was used to gather standard meteorological measurements. The Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) automatic weather station was operated by the University of Salford.
