  • This dataset contains a series of 99 limited-area models (LAMs) nested within the Met Office global model. Met Office Unified Model (MetUM) deployed on xce, xcf and xcs in Exeter. Model data generated using Met Office Unified Model using a nesting suite (u-bw210) that runs an N512 global forecast and 99 embedded limited-area models each using a convection-permitting grid-length of 1.5km. The LAMs are each 360x360 grid points. The outer region is deemed to be a spin-up region and is ignored. The central 240x240 is then coarse-grained onto a 45km scale using 30x30 horizontal averaging to produce a 8x8=64 grid of spatially averaged data. Each file contains data from only one of these 64 subdomains, but data from every one the 99 regions around the globe. The nesting simulations are free-running within each LAM, but the driving model is re-initialised every 00Z using operational atmospheric analyses. All 99 regions are wholly over the sea. The central lat/lon for each of the 99 regions are: (80,-150), (70,0), (60,-35), (60,-15), (50,-160), (50,-140), (50,-45), (50,-25), (50,-149), (50,170), (40,-160), (40,-140), (40,-65), (40,-45), (40,-25), (40,150), (40,170), (30,-170), (30,-150), (30,-130), (29,-65), (30,-45), (30,-25), (30,145), (30,170), (20,-170), (20,-145), (21,-115), (20,-55), (20,-30), (20,65), (20,135), (20,170), (10,-170), (10,-140), (10,-120), (10,-100), (10,-50), (10,-30), (10,60), (10,88), (10,145), (10,160), (0,-160), (0,-130), (0,-100), (0,-30), (0,-15), (0,0), (0,50), (0,70), (0,88), (0,160), (-10,-170), (-10,-140), (-10,-120), (-10,-90), (-10,-30), (-10,-15), (-10,5), (-10,60), (-10,88), (-10,170), (-20,-160), (-20,-130), (-20,-100), (-20,-30), (-20,0), (-20,55), (-20,80), (-20,105), (-30,-160), (-30,-130), (-30,-100), (-30,-40), (-30,-15), (-30,10), (-30,60), (-30,88), (-40,-160), (-40,-130), (-40,-100), (-40,-50), (-40,0), (-40,50), (-40,100), (-50,-150), (-50,-90), (-50,-30), (-50,30), (-50,88), (-50,150), (-60,-140), (-60,-70), (-60,0), (-60,70), (-60,140), (-70,-160), (-70,-40). The data has near global coverage, but using this series of small domains. Training data is available for 6 months: Jan, Mar, Apr, Jul, Oct, Dec 2016. Test data is available for Jun 2017.

  • This dataset contains surface aerosol size distribution (0.25 to 6.5 μm diameter) measured on the roof of the Summit Station Greenland using a GRIMM SKYOPC 1.129 Optical Particle Counter. Data are 1 minute averages concatenated into monthly files. These data were collected as part of the joint Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) and US National Science Foundation (NSF) -funded Integrated Characterisation of Energy, Clouds, Atmospheric state, and Precipitation at Summit - Aerosol Cloud Experiment (ICECAPS-ACE) project. These data were continued through the 3 year extension to the ICECAPS-ACE project called ICECAPS-MELT.

  • The ESA Climate Change Initiative Aerosol project has produced a number of global aerosol Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from a set of European satellite instruments with different characteristics. This dataset comprises Level 2 aerosol products from the ATSR-2 instrument on the ERS-2 satellite, derived using the ORAC algorithm, version 4.01. It covers the period from 1995-2003 For further details about these data products please see the linked documentation.

  • Magnetic time-series from the BGS SWIGS differential magnetometer method (DMM) systems. Funded by NERC, grant number: NE/P017231/1 "Space Weather Impact on Ground-based Systems (SWIGS)". These data consist of measurements of the Earth’s natural magnetic field at the Whiteadder Moor remote site (WHIR) and the natural magnetic field plus the field created by GIC at the Whiteadder Moor underline site (WHIU). The database will include .xyz files with the DMM data and one document with metadata. See Hübert et al. (2020) for further details.

  • Results of piston cylinder experiments on lower-crustal material from the Ivrea Zone, Italian Alps. Natural sulfides and sulfide-silicate mixes from lower crustal cumulates were heated and pressurised to conditions matching those of the MASH zone, which is hypothesised to be the source of metals for post-collisional porphyry Cu deposits. This was done in order to simulate partial melting and examine the mobility of metals in this environment. This data contains experimental logs stating the experimental conditions; reflected light photographs of the experimental capsules; scanning electron microscope element maps and identification of platinum group minerals and precious metal minerals in the capsules; and trace element concentration of sulfides in the capsules. This data was collected as part of the TeaSe consortium NERC grant in order to test hypotheses about porphyry Cu deposit formation. This data was collected by researchers at Cardiff University and the University of Edinburgh.

  • Petrological and geochemical data of sulphides and samples from the Muratdere Cu-Au-Mo porphyry deposit, Turkey. Samples were taken from several boreholes from the Muratdere mine in Western Turkey, courtesy of Stratex International (now Oriole Resources). This data contains petrological photographs and trace element concentration of ore minerals. This data was collected as part of the TeaSe consortium NERC grant in order to determine the concentration and hosting of critical and precious metals in various types of ore deposits and barren rocks from different geological environments. This data was collected and interpreted by researchers at Cardiff University and is used in a paper, available at https://doi.org/10.5382/econgeo.4638.

  • The borehole information pack from borehole GGA02, site 01 of the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Glasgow facility. This release from the British Geological Survey (BGS) contains BGS and Drillers’ logs, cased hole wireline data, details on fibre-optic cable installation, a listing of archived rock chips and a descriptive report. The borehole was drilled between 17th June and 20th September 2019 (start of drilling to casing installation date) to 94.16 m drilled depth as a mine water characterisation and monitoring borehole. Unfortunately, during the final stages of construction grout entered inside the casing, the casing was damaged and the borehole is now available as a sensor testing borehole to 67.2 m. The cased borehole was wireline logged in January 2020. Rock chip samples were taken during the drilling process and have been archived at the National Geological Repository at BGS Keyworth. Further details can be found in the accompanying report http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/528076 DOI https://dx.doi.org/10.5285/189dac62-b720-4fde-8260-f129fb9b0233

  • Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for ARNA-2 FAAM Aircraft Project project.

  • The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 6 (CMIP6) data from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (NASA GISS) GISS-E2-1-G model output for the "effective radiative forcing by present day anthropogenic agents" (piClim-anthro) experiment. These are available at the following frequency: Amon. The runs included the ensemble member: r1i1p1f1. CMIP6 was a global climate model intercomparison project, coordinated by PCMDI (Program For Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison) on behalf of the WCRP and provided input for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 6th Assessment Report (AR6). The official CMIP6 Citation, and its associated DOI, is provided as an online resource linked to this record.

  • Monthly sampling of cave drip and lake water from St Michaels Cave and Ragged Staff Cave, Gibraltar.
