  • This dataset contains carbon dioxide and methane measurements from the Little Plumpton site. British Geological Survey (BGS), the universities of Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and York and partners from Public Health England (PHE) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), are conducting an independent environmental baseline monitoring programme near Kirby Misperton, North Yorkshire and Little Plumpton, Lancashire. These are areas where planning permission has been granted for hydraulic fracturing.” The monitoring allows the characterisation of the environmental baseline before any hydraulic fracturing and gas exploration or production takes place in the event that planning permission is granted. The investigations are independent of any monitoring carried out by the industry or the regulators, and information collected from the programme will be made freely available to the public. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you use these data, please note the requirement to acknowledge use.

  • Quaternary QUEST was led by Dr Tim Lenton at UEA, with a team of 10 co-investigators at the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Reading, Leeds, Bristol, Southampton and at UEA. This dataset collection contains glacial and isotope model data. Over the last million years, the Earth has experienced a sequence of temperature oscillations between glacial and interglacial states, linked to variations in the Earth’s orbit around the sun. These climate oscillations were accompanied by changes in atmospheric CO2, but the fundamental reasons for this relationship are still unresolved. This project team aimed to compile a synthesis of palaeodata from sediments and ice cores, improve the synchronization of these records with each other, and use this greater understanding of the Earth’s ancient atmosphere to improve Earth system models simulating climate over very long timescales. A combined long-term data synthesis and modelling approach has helped to constrain some key mechanisms responsible for glacial-interglacial CO2 change, and Quaternary QUEST narrowed the field of ocean processes that could have caused glacial CO2 drawdown.

  • This dataset contains carbon dioxide and water vapour concentration measurements from the University of Leeds' LI-COR LI-7500 open path gas analyser mounted on board the Swedish Icebreaker Oden durning Arctic Cloud Summer Expedition (ACSE). ACSE took place in the Arctic during summer 2014. These measurements were used to complement a suite of other observations taken during the cruise. Those of the UK contribution, as well as selected other data, are available within the associated data collection in the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) archives. Other cruise data may be available in the NOAA ACSE and The Bolin Centre for Climate Research SWERUS (SWEdish-Russian-US) holdings - see online resources linked to this record. The instrument's sensing head was located on the foremast of Icebreaker Oden, approximately 1 m forward of the sonic anemometer. Note the LiCOR LI-7500 CO2 data are generally not suitable for flux measurements at sea. Only the water vapour signal has been used for flux analysis. Data times were truncated to match those from the sonic anemometer and the internal lag was corrected for. Users should also note that the instrument's temperature and pressure measurements are made inside the interface box. Temperature is thus likely to be high due to solar heating of box, and pressure will be biased low (box is ~3 m below sensor) and may be subject to dynamic pressure fluctuations resulting from airflow around pressure inlet. Measurements are made at 20 Hz frequency. The Arctic Cloud Summer Expedition (ACSE) was a collaboration between the University of Leeds, the University of Stockholm, and NOAA-CIRES. ACSE aimed to study the response of Arctic boundary layer cloud to changes in surface conditions in the Arctic Ocean as a working package of the larger Swedish-Russian-US Investigation of Climate, Cryosphere and Carbon interaction (SWERUS-C3) Expedition in Summer 2014. This expedition was a core component to the overall SWERUS-C3 programme and was supported by the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat. ACSE took place during a 3-month cruise of the Swedish Icebreaker Oden from Tromso, Norway to Barrow, Alaska and back over the summer of 2014. During this cruise ACSE scientists measured surface turbulent exchange, boundary layer structure, and cloud properties. Many of the measurements used remote sensing approaches - radar, lidar, and microwave radiometers - to retrieve vertical profiles of the dynamic and microphysical properties of the lower atmosphere and cloud. The UK participation of ACSE was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC, grant: NE/K011820/1) and involved instrumentation from the Atmospheric Measurement Facility of the UK's National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS AMF). This dataset collection contains data mainy from the UK contribution with some additional data from other institutes also archived to complement the suite of meteorological measurements.

  • Quaternary QUEST was led by Dr Tim Lenton at UEA, with a team of 10 co-investigators at the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Reading, Leeds, Bristol, Southampton and at UEA. This dataset contains FAMOUS (FAst Met Office/UK Universities Simulator) glacial cycle model data from 150,000 years ago to present. The project team aimed to compile a synthesis of palaeodata from sediments and ice cores, improve the synchronization of these records with each other, and use this greater understanding of the Earth’s ancient atmosphere to improve Earth system models simulating climate over very long timescales. A combined long-term data synthesis and modelling approach has helped to constrain some key mechanisms responsible for glacial-interglacial CO2 change, and Quaternary QUEST have narrowed the field of ocean processes that could have caused glacial CO2 drawdown.

  • Longterm measurements of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide at Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) using a Siemens NDIR 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.

  • Data comprise methane and carbon dioxide concentrations in soil following injection of discrete pulses of methane into subsoil (50 cm depth) below a spring wheat crop during the growing season. Supporting data on soil moisture, soil temperature and meteorology are provided. The data may be useful for testing models of methane and carbon dioxide transport and fate in temperate agricultural soils. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/18939865-d863-498b-b4cb-5661eaeadcfc

  • This dataset contains methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide measurements taken from Bilsdale Tower at 42, 108 and 248m. The measurements were taken using a Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer (CRDS). This data was collected as part of the NERC GAUGE (Greenhouse gAs UK and Global Emissions) project (NE/K002449/1NERC and TRN1028/06/2015). The GAUGE project aimed to produce robust estimates of the UK Greenhouse Gas budget, using new and existing measurement networks and modelling activities at a range of scales. It aimed to integrate inter- calibrated information from ground-based, airborne, ferry-borne, balloon-borne, and space-borne sensors, including new sensor technology.

  • This dataset contains methane, carbon dioxide and meteorological observations taken onboard the commercial freight ferry Finlandia Seaways on route between Rosyth (Scotland, UK: 56°1'21.611''N 3°26'21.558'' W) and Zeebrugge (Belgium : 51°21'16.96''N 3°10'34.645''E) 2015-2017 by the Centre for Ecology and hydrology (CEH). The measurements were taken using a Picarro CRDS model G1301, Vaisala WXT510 weather station and Garmin GPS. This data was collected as part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Greenhouse gAs Uk and Global Emissions (GAUGE) project (NE/K002449/1NERC) and NERC UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability (NE/R016429/1). The GAUGE project aimed to determine the magnitude, spatial distribution, and uncertainties of the UK's Greenhouse Gas budget using new and existing measurement networks and modelling approaches at a range of scales.
