Land Surface Temperature (LST) Level 2 data products (UOL_LST_2P) from the Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) produced by the University of Leicester. The data consists of a Level 2 1km resolution AATSR-orbit based product at a pre-defined set of spatial and temporal resolutions. The product provide AATSR-derived land surface temperature data and its associated uncertainty, as wall as additional auxiliary information. Level 2 products were produced under contract to the European Space Agency and constitute part of the official (A)ATSR multimission product from version 3 of that dataset. Funding from NERC and the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) also helped in the development of this product and enabled the production of the derived Level 3 products. Both products are NetCDF formatted. For further information on the formats of each of the products please see their product user guides.
Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft during flight 10 for South AMerican Biomass Burning Analysis (SAMBBA) project.
Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for APPRAISE - Aerosol properties, processes and influences on the Earth's climate project.
The CAST dataset contains data produced by the NERC Co-ordinated Airborne Studies in the Tropics (CAST) project. CAST was a collaborative initiative with NASA's Airborne Tropical Tropopause Experiment (ATTREX) programme to study the Tropical Tropopause Layer (TTL) over the Pacific Ocean and South East Asia. This dataset contains measurements of ozone, carbon dioxide, methane and other atmospheric chemical species.
Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for Joint Airborne IASI Validation Experiment (JAIVEX) project.
Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for Dust and Biomass EXperiment (DABEX) project.
The HadGEM1 model is the Met Office Hadley centre global environment model version 1. This version of the model includes a detailed representation of the atmosphere, land surface, ocean, and cryosphere. This dataset includes a control run and a number of climate change experiments. Part of the UK Met Office Hadley Centre's contributions to the fourth assessment report of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) was based on the HadGEM1 model. This dataset provides all the available data from the control integration (run with preindustrial levels of CO2 and other forcings) as well as output from a number of climate change experiments. The data is provided in the Met Office PP format, but tools are available to extract subsets in NetCDF and other formats.
Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for GERBIL - GERB Intercomparison of Longwave Radiation project.
Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for Continuum Absorption in the Visible and Infrared and its Atmospheric Relevance (CAVIAR) project.
The "ISOMAP UK" project was a combined data-modelling investigation of water isotopes and their interpretation during rapid climate change events project was a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) RAPID Climate Change Research Programme project (Round 1 - NER/T/S/2002/00460 - Duration 1 May 2003 - 30 Apr 2008) led by Prof J.A. Holmes of the University College London, with co-investigators at the University of Southampton, University of Liverpool, University of Manchester, University of Bristol and the NERC British Antarctic Survey. This dataset contains comparison of high-resolution isotope records from terrestrial archives in NW Europe with model simulations of isotopes in precipitation. This is a control 9K simulation, and a freshwater hosing experiment. The freshwater hosing experiment had 5Sv of freshwater added to the North Atlantic for 1 year. The freshwater forcing was then removed and the model allowed to adjust. Rapid Climate Change (RAPID) was a £20 million, six-year (2001-2007) programme for the Natural Environment Research Council. The programme aimed to improve the ability to quantify the probability and magnitude of future rapid change in climate, with a main (but not exclusive) focus on the role of the Atlantic Ocean's Thermohaline Circulation.
