  • 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.

  • The Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) intercomparison field campaign took place in September 2002 at the Met Office Meteorological Research Unit (MRU), Cardington. The dataset contains measurements of wind speed and direction and turbulence parameters made with several of the UFAM instruments and the Met Office in-situ balloon borne tethersondes. These data are publicly available.
