  • The data are simulated instantaneous sea surface elevations above time-mean sea level due to tides alone (tideAnom) and due to tide and meteorological surge (tideSurgeAnom). The data were produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre, using data made available by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the Climate Model Intercomparison Project, phase 5 (CMIP5). The data were produced to investigate the impact of simulated atmospheric storminess change on extreme sea levels. To produce the data, atmospheric winds and pressure from the SMHI Regional Atmospheric Model RCA4 was used to drive the CS3 continental shelf model. The data are the resulting simulated sea surface elevations. Five CMIP5 RCP8.5 simulations were downscaled in this way: EC-EARTH, HadGEM2-ES, MPI-ESM-LR, IPSL-CM5A-MR, CNRM-CM5. The data covers the period 2007 to 2099, and applies to the UK coast.

  • Derived climate model projections data produced as part of the UK Climate Projections 2018 (UKCP18) project. The data produced by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre provides information on changes in 21st century climate for the UK helping to inform adaptation to a changing climate. The derived climate model projections are estimated using a methodology based on time shift and other statistical approaches applied to a set of 28 projections comprising of 15 coupled simulations produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre, and 13 coupled simulations from CMIP5. The derived climate model projections exist for the RCP2.6 emissions scenario and for 2°C and 4°C global warming above pre-industrial levels. The derived climate model projections are provided on a 60km spatial grid for the UK region and the projections consist of time series for the RCP2.6 emissions scenario that cover 1900-2100 and a 50 year time series for each of the global warming levels. This dataset contains realisations scenario with global warming stabilised at 4°C

  • HadUK-Grid is a collection of gridded climate variables derived from the network of UK land surface observations. The data have been interpolated from meteorological station data onto a uniform grid to provide complete and consistent coverage across the UK. The data set at 12 km resolution is derived from the associated 1km x 1km resolution to allow for comparison to data from climate projections. The dataset spans the period from 1862 to 2017, but the start time is dependent on climate variable and temporal resolution. The grids are produced for daily, monthly, seasonal and annual timescales, as well as long term averages for a set of climatological reference periods. Variables include air temperature (maximum, minimum and mean), precipitation, sunshine, mean sea level pressure, wind speed, relative humidity, vapour pressure, days of snow lying, and days of ground frost. This data set supersedes the UKCP09 gridded observations. Subsequent versions may be released in due course and will follow the version numbering as outlined by Hollis et al. (2018, see linked documentation). The primary purpose of these data are to facilitate monitoring of UK climate and research into climate change, impacts and adaptation. The datasets have been created by the Met Office with financial support from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in order to support the Public Weather Service Customer Group (PWSCG), the Hadley Centre Climate Programme, and the UK Climate Projections (UKCP18) project. The data recovery activity to supplement 19th and early 20th Century data availability has also been funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC grant ref: NE/L01016X/1) project "Analysis of historic drought and water scarcity in the UK". The dataset is provided under Open Government Licence.

  • HadUK-Grid is a collection of gridded climate variables derived from the network of UK land surface observations. The data have been interpolated from meteorological station data onto a uniform grid to provide complete and consistent coverage across the UK.

  • The data are simulated instantaneous sea surface elevations above time-mean sea level due to tides alone. The data were produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre. The data were produced to investigate the impact of simulated mean sea level increase on UK coastal tides. To produce the data, the CS3 continental shelf model was used to simulate the tides under various different amounts of mean sea level increase (simulated by simply increasing the bathymetry). The data are the resulting simulated sea surface elevations above the mean sea level. The data covers a period of about 28 days (one spring-neap cycle), and applies to the UK coast.

  • Convection permitting climate model projections produced as part of the UK Climate Projection 2018 (UKCP18) project. The data produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre provides information on changes in climate for the UK until 2080, downscaled to a high resolution (2.2km), helping to inform adaptation to a changing climate. The projections cover the UK and three time-slices (1981-2000, 2021-2040 and 2061-2080), for a high emissions scenario, RCP8.5. Each projection provides an example of climate variability in a changing climate, which is consistent across climate variables at different times and spatial locations. This dataset contains 2.2km data on a 5km grid. Note that these data were updated during summer 2021, after the correction of a coding error relating to graupel. Full details can be found on the Met Office website, on the Project News page: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/approach/collaboration/ukcp/ukcp18-project-news/index. The previous version of the data will be retained on CEDA for twelve months until 21st July 2022.

  • This dataset contains momentum budget model data from Dudh Koshi Valley in the Himalayas. The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model was run for two months, July 2013 and January 2014, to investigate the momentum budget components of the winds in the Dudh Koshi Valley. This data was collected as part of the Dynamical drivers of the local wind regime in a Himalayan valley project (NE/L002507/1). The WRF model has been modified to output the momentum budget components. There are four nested domains, of 27 km, 9 km, 3 km and 1 km resolution. The inner 1 km is 130 km by 130 km, centred on 27.98N, 86.76E.

  • Regional climate model projections produced as part of the UK Climate Projection 2018 (UKCP18) project. The data produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre provides information on changes in climate for the UK until 2080, downscaled to a high resolution (12km), helping to inform adaptation to a changing climate. The projections cover Europe and a 100 year period, 1981-2080, for a high emissions scenario, RCP8.5. Each projection provides an example of climate variability in a changing climate, which is consistent across climate variables at different times and spatial locations. This dataset contains 12km data for Europe on the 12km rotated pole grid.
