  • The Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition II (AASE II) which was based in Bangor, Maine between October 1991 and March 1992, with ER-2 flights from Ames Research Center, Fairbanks (Alaska), and Bangor; and DC-8 flights from Ames, Bangor, Anchorage (Alaska), Stavanger (Norway), and Tahiti, was a follow-up to an earlier AASE campaign in 1989. The dataset consists of measurements collected of ozonesonde soundings from six Canadian stations, global grid point values of Nimbus 7 TOMS ozone, and selected radiosonde soundings. Theory teams provided calculations of potential vorticity, temperature, geopotential, horizontal winds, parcel back trajectories, and concentrations of short lived species along the aircraft flight tracks; and northern hemispheric analyses of potential vorticity, temperature, geopotential, horizontal winds, and radiative heating rates.

  • The University of Manchester radiosonde data contain measurements collected by a UFAM (Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement) radiosonde at Swanage, Dorset, from the 19th of June 2005 to the 25th of August 2005. The dataset contains measurements of air temperature, air pressure, wind speed and wind direction, and relative humidity.

  • The Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition II (AASE II) which was based in Bangor, Maine between October 1991 and March 1992, with ER-2 flights from Ames Research Center, Fairbanks (Alaska), and Bangor; and DC-8 flights from Ames, Bangor, Anchorage (Alaska), Stavanger (Norway), and Tahiti, was a follow-up to an earlier AASE campaign in 1989. This dataset consists of MODEL data containing 12 Z hemispheric analyses of potential vorticity, temperature, horizontal winds, and radiative heating rates; and one file named MA911006.H00 which contains gas-phase chemistry model reconstructions of several radicals as a function of latitude, altitude, and local time.

  • This dataset contains volatile organic compound concentration measurements made by the University of Lancaster using the UK CEH proton transfer reaction-quadrupole ion guide time of flight-mass spectrometer (PTR-QiTOF-MS). Measurements were made at the Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) field site, Dehli, India during the DelhiFlux campaigns. Measurements from 04/10/2018 to 04/11/2018 were made at ground level (~4 m). Measurements from 05/11/2018 to 23/11/2018 were made at 30 m above ground level. All values are reported in ppbV (parts per billion by volume). The data were collected as part of the DelhiFlux project part of Air Pollution & Human Health in a Developing Indian Megacity (APHH-India) programme.

  • The African Easterly Jet (AEJ) is part of a climatic system which is of critical importance to African and global weather and climate, but is poorly observed and not well represented in model analyses. For the JET2000 project the Met Office Met Research flight (MRF) aircraft performed four flights, involving transects along and across the jet and the baroclinic zone, to make observations of unprecedented resolution for this part of the world. 110 dropsondes were dropped along the fight path. The data includes detailed synoptic observations of the basic state over mainland West Africa, and detailed synoptic observations of the African Easterly Waves (AEW) over mainland tropical West Africa.

  • Longterm Meteorological observations (temperature, relative humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction, solar irradiance) at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC.

  • This dataset contains photolysis rate measurements made during the Pre- Monsoon and Post-Monsoon periods of the APHH Delhi campaigns in 2018 at Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) site. Photolysis rates are derived from the product of the absorption cross-section of the precursor molecule, the quantum yield of the photo-product and the actinic flux density (cm-2s-1nm-1). The actinic flux is measured between 280 - 650 nm (<1 nm resolution) using a Ocean Optics spectral radiometer attached to a quartz receiver optic. Data is averaged to 1 minute time-stamp. The data were collected as part of the DelhiFlux project part of Air Pollution & Human Health in a Developing Indian Megacity (APHH-India) programme.

  • Longterm Carbon Monoxide and Molecular Hydrogen measurements at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) using a Reduction Gas Analyser operated by the NCAS (National Centre for Atmospheric Science) AMF (Atmospheric Measurement Facility). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC. The atmospheric carbon monoxide and molecular hydrogen are measured every 6 minutes.

  • Long term measurements of atmospheric O2 at Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) made using the Oxilla instrument operated by the NCAS (National Centre for Atmospheric Science) AMF (Atmospheric Measurement Facility). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC.

  • Southern Ocean Atmospheric Photochemistry Experiment 2 (SOAPEX-2) is primarily an experiment to study atmospheric cleansing by free radicals in extremely clean and slightly perturbed tropospheric air and focuses on a field campaign carried out at Cape Grim, Tasmania in January-February 1999. The dataset contains concentrations of atmospheric constituents of hydrocarbons. This dataset is public.
