  • The dataset contains a variety of atmospheric measurements including time series of air temperature, wind speed and direction, precipitation, irradiance and humidity. A comprehensive atmospheric sampling programme provided measurements of atmospheric particulates, aerosols and gases, including hydrocarbons, nitrogen, oxygen, ozone and sulphur species, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrous and hydrochloric acids. Additional measurements of photolysis rates and ion and radical concentrations were also collected. The data were collected from the vicinity of the north Norfolk coast between 1994 and 1997. The bulk of the data were collected during two field campaigns in the winter (October/November) of 1994 and the summer (May/June) of 1995. During these campaigns data were collected continuously from the University of East Anglia (UEA) Atmospheric Observatory at Weybourne on the north Norfolk coast. The widest range of parameters is available for this station. An instrumented vessel (MV Guardian) was stationed offshore to provide a second sampling site to allow changes in a given air mass to be monitored. The Imperial College London Jetstream Research aircraft made one flight during each campaign to provide a link between the two surface stations and four additional flights in 1996 and 1997. The River-Atmosphere-Coast Study (RACS) was the component of the LOIS programme looking at processes from the river catchment into the coastal sea. Professor John Plane from the Environmental Sciences Department at UEA was the scientific co-ordinator of this sub-project of LOIS. The data are held by BODC as a series of ASCII data files conforming to the NASA AMES 1001 format together with a PDF document that describes the data set.

  • The databank comprises more than 50,000 profiles of conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) or salinity-temperature-depth (STD) profiles collected during 100s of research cruises by UK laboratories, since 1969. The majority of profiles were collected in the North East Atlantic but data are available from elsewhere including for example the Indian Ocean, the South Atlantic and the Southern Ocean. Many profiles have been measured in shelf seas (often around the UK) but some are deep ocean profiles which may contain data to a depth of 5000m. Data are normally supplied to the British Oceanographic Data Centre as time or depth averages resulting in vertical resolutions between 0.5 dbar and 10 dbar, with casts collected in shallow water typically having a higher vertical resolution.

  • The dataset comprises 43 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the English Channel, North Sea, Irish Sea and St. George's Channel, and the Bristol Channel areas, specifically from between Liverpool and the Isle of Man and then at various locations around the west, south west and south coasts up to the east of Ipswich. The data was collected during January and February of 2003. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science Lowestoft Laboratory.
