  • This dataset contains modelling output from the u-ab326 run of a high-resolution (1.5 km horizontal grid, 118 vertical levels up to around 75 km altitude, 30 s timestep) local-area configuration of the Met Office Unified Model run in a box over the island of South Georgia (54S, 36W), as part of the South Georgia Wave Experiment (SG-WEx) project. This run was for the time period July 2015 with the island orography included. See related dataset for output from a complementary run with a flat orography file for the island for the same time period. These were part of a group of 6 model runs for the SG-WEx project. The aim of the modelling runs was to examine gravity wave generation and deep vertical propagation over this mountainous island. Three model time periods are archived within the SG-WEx dataset collection: January 2015, June 2015 and July 2015, each containing two runs, one including the island's orography and one without. Initial and boundary conditions are supplied by a global forecast to ensure that conditions over the island remain realistic. Meteorological fields such as wind, temperature, pressure etc were outputted and saved in hourly steps. These runs also coincided with radiosonde campaigns launched from the island. Technical details regarding the configuration of these runs is described Vosper (2015, doi:10.1002/qj.2566). Further information and science results can be found in Jackson et al. (2018, doi:10.1175/BAMS-D-16-0151.1) and Hindley (2021, doi:10.5194/acp-21-7695-2021). See online resources linked to this record for further details.

  • The Unified Model is the name given to the suite of atmospheric and oceanic numerical modelling software developed and used at the Met Office. The formulation of the model supports global and regional domains and is applicable to a wide range of temporal and spatial scales that allow it to be used for both numerical weather prediction and climate modelling as well as a variety of related research activities. The Unified Model was introduced into operational service in 1991. Since then, both its formulation and capabilities have been substantially enhanced. Data from the operational NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) output from the Met Office Unified Model. These data are from both the Global and the North Atlantic European (NAE) part of the model. The NAE model runs on a grid centred around the UK. Analyses and intermediate forecast steps are stored to give an hourly time resolution for 6 hours following each analysis time-step. This archive only holds data to January 2012. A new NWP archive is being populated with data from January 2012. The dataset starts on 23 October 2000, and is ongoing. Around 1.6Gb of data are stored for each day. Analysis fields at 0,6,12,18Z are stored, along with all of the forecast fields from 1-6 hours from each analysis time. Mesoscale : lb[a,f][m,p]yyyymmddhh_STASHCODE_fh.pp Global: ag[a,f][m,p]yyyymmddhh_STASHCODE_fh.pp where yyyymmddhh is the year, month,day and assimilation time, STASHCODE is the STASHMASTER parameter code, fh is the forecast timestep (from the assimilation time), and pp indicates that the files are in binary "pp" format. The directory structure has also been changed to bring it in line with the BADC ECMWF holdings. The mesoscale files and global data are now stored under: /badc/ukmo-um/data/meso/lb/a[m,p] for the analysis fields /badc/ukmo-um/data/meso/lb/f[m,p] for the forecast fields /badc/ukmo-um/data/global/ag/a[m,p] for the analysis fields /badc/ukmo-um/data/global/ag/f[m,p] for the forecast fields Pre-2004 data are still available in the old format under /badc/ukmo-um/data/mesocale/[sm,mm] and /badc/ukmo-um/data/global/[mg,sg], although these will be phased out as the data are archived in the newer format.

  • Data from the operational NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) output from the Variable resolution UK (UKV) part of the Met Office Unified Model. This latest configuration of the UM model has a high resolution inner domain (1.5 km grid boxes) over the area of forecast interest, separated from a coarser grid (4 km) near the boundaries by a variable resolution transition zone. This variable resolution approach allows the boundaries to be moved further away from the region of interest, reducing unwanted boundary effects on the forecasts. The UKV model is kept close to observations using 3D-Var data assimilation every 3 hours. This archive is currently being populated at the BADC.
