This dataset contains measurements of ethane, propane, butane, cyclopentane, pentane and hexane. Oxidant and Particle Photochemical Processes above a South-East Asian tropical rain forest (OP3-Danum-08) is a 3-year Consortium Grant of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), beginning 1 October 2007. The objectives of the OP3 project are (i) to understand how emissions of reactive trace gases from a tropical rain forest mediate the production and processing of oxidants and particles in the troposphere, and (ii) to better understand the impact of these processes on local, regional and global scale atmospheric composition, chemistry and climate.
Met Office high resolution (2 second) radiosonde data from the Dunkerswell station from November 1999. The data consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, humidity mixing ratio, sonde position, wind speed and wind direction. Measurements are taken at 2 second intervals and the ascents extend to heights of approximately 20-30 km.
The Improved Stratospheric and Mesospheric Sounder (ISAMS) measured vertical profiles of temperature and a number of atmospheric constituents. An instrument on board UARS (Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite) measured global stratospheric and mesospheric temperature, CO, H2O, CH4, O3, HNO3, N2O5, NO2, N2O and aerosol extinction. Gridded, global measurements between 80S and 80N, October 1991 - July 1992. Data include level 2 and 3A product (gridded in time or latitude along the satellite track). Data are version 9/10 for Level 3 and version 8 for Level 2. ISAMS data is public.
This dataset contains Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and meteorological data from a static reference station at the base of the Snowdon Mountain Railway at Llanberis (SNLB). The data were collected from 28th August 2011 to 16th October 2011 (50 days). Two instruments collected data from the base including; Paroscientific Met 4 (ncl-met-4) and Leica GS10 GNSS (ncl-leica-gnss). The ncl-leica-gnss measured dual frequency GPS and GLONASS code and carrier phase satellite to receiver measurements, whilst the ncl-met-4 sensor recorded pressure and temperature.
Data from Hadley Centre Global Environmental Model version 1a (HadGEM1a) at Earth Simulator Supercomputer for the UK-Japan Climate Collaboration (UJCC) project Project
Data from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (NASA/GISS), USA GISS ModelE-R simulations
The Cloud and Water Vapour Experiment (CWAVE) was a measurement campaign at the CCLRC-Chilbolton Observatory; it was supporting associated with two EC FP5 projects, CLOUDMAP2 and CLOUDNET. A wide range of satellite and ground based instruments measured a variety of atmospheric properties ranging from cloud parameters to water vapour. In addition, the measurements coincided with the results from a reduced resolution Unified Model (UM) run by the Met Office.
Data from the Centre National de Recherches Meteorologiques CNRM-CM3 simulations
An international long-term collaboration to study the climatic and environmental feedback mechanisms involved in the African monsoon, and in some of its consequences on society and human health. The programme, which started in 2004, has developed a network of ground-based observation stations over Sub-Saharan West Africa to measure heat flux and, for some stations, CO2 and H2O vapour fluxes. Files also include concomitant meteorological measurements (wind, temperature, pressure, humidity, rainfall) and soil physics parameters (soil temperature and moisture). The UK branch of AMMA makes use of several instruments provided by the UK Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) which are centred on the Niamey meso-site. The Facility for Airbourne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) aircraft was used during the July-August 2006 campaign.
Data from observations made at the The Cape Verde Atmospheric Observatory (16.848N, 24.871W) which exists to advance understanding of climatically significant interactions between the atmosphere and ocean and to provide a regional focal point and long-term data. The observatory is based on Calhau Island of São Vicente, Cape Verde in the tropical Eastern North Atlantic Ocean, a region which is data poor but plays a key role in atmosphere-ocean interactions of climate-related and biogeochemical parameters including greenhouse gases. It is an open-ocean site that is representative of a region likely to be sensitive to future climate change, and is minimally influenced by local effects and intermittent continental pollution. The dataset contains SOLAS NAME back trajectory images.
