  • The Stratospheric Photochemistry, Aerosols and Dynamics Expedition (SPADE) was based at the NASA Ames Research Centre in California during portions of 1992 and 1993. This dataset contains measurements of meteorological parameters, atmospheric composition, aerosol and cloud plus GOES imagery and TOMS column ozone. The overall data collection consist of measurements collected onboard the NASA ER-2 aircraft, and selected radiosonde soundings from stations in the region of the experiment. Flights were conducted during October and November of 1992, April and May of 1993, and October of 1993. Theory team products come in two forms: as quantities evaluated along flight tracks and as global or hemispheric fields. Meteorological quantities, such as temperature, geopotential, and potential vorticity are available in both forms. They are based on analyses from both the U.S. National Meteorological Center and from the Assimilation Model of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Other quantities, available along flight tracks only, include visible reflectivity, cloud height, UV reflectivity, and total ozone. The first two are derived from GOES imagery, the last two from the Meteor TOMS sensor. Finally, calculations of mixing ratios of selected chemical species using a photochemical steady state model are available along the flight track.

  • This dataset contains scan data from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science's (NCAS) mobile X-band radar collected at the Davidstow Airfield, Cornwall, between June and August 2013 as part of the MICROphysicS of COnvective PrEcipitation (MICROSCOPE) project. The X-band radar is operated as part of the NCAS Atmospheric Measurement Facility's (AMF).

This version 2 dataset contains improved metadata and uses a revised processing method to improve data accuracy. Users should also note the change in filenaming convention for this instrument whereby the volume number given after the date-time part is no longer provided.

  • This dataset contains the raw data from GNSS/INS (Global Navigation Satellite System/Inertial Navigation System) buoys deployed during the 2019-2020 MOSAiC expedition. These buoys recorded the data from GNSS and Sensors. The raw GNSS data contain time, latitude, longitude, velocity, and fix type. The raw Sensors data contain time, acceleration, gyroscope, magnetometer, and temperature. These data were sampled at 10 Hz. The original data was in ANPP format (see advancednavigation.com), which have been converted to structured ASCII formats (such as RINEX, CSV) using Spatial Manager software. The buoys were assembled by the University of Huddersfield team and the deployment was done by the MOSAiC ice team throughout the expedition. This work was funded by NERC MOSAiC program NE/S002545/1.
