  • The overall aim of the UK Surface Ocean / Lower Atmosphere Study (UK SOLAS) is to advance understanding of environmentally significant interactions between the atmosphere and ocean, focusing on material exchanges that involve ocean productivity, atmospheric composition and climate. The knowledge obtained will improve the predictability of climate change and give insights into the distribution and fate of persistent pollutants. The dataset contains biological and chemical measurements such as: major nutrients and trace metal concentrations in aerosol and rain samples, chemical analyses of inorganic micro-nutrients, dissolved and particulate trace metal and carbon analyses, dissolved nitrogen and organic phosphate, biological measurements including phytoplankton pigments, bacteria, picoplankton and larger phytoplankton abundance.

  • The Brazil-UK Network for Investigation of Amazonian Atmospheric Composition and Impacts on Climate (BUNIAACIC) collaboration was a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project (NE/I030178/1) This project aimed to develop a coherent strategy for UK studies of atmospheric composition and impacts in the Amazon. This dataset contains measurements from the Manchester UV-LIF spectrometer data (fluorine and chlorine number concentration and particle size distribution) processed with "MUTANT data processing toolkit (MAN-WIBS3M)

  • The ACES (Aerosol Coupling in the Earth System) project was an integrated research programme that aims to reduce uncertainties in our fundamental understanding of the formation of BSOA (Biogenic Secondary Organic Aerosol) and the subsequent impact on atmospheric composition, through coordinated chamber studies, field studies, process model development, and application of atmospheric models of chemistry and transport to assess coupling and feedbacks in the Earth system. This dataset contains Micrometeorological parameters and fluxes, measured at ground level. Data were collected during 2 periods (13 April 2008 - 3 May 2008 and 21 June 2008 - 23 July 2008) by the University of Manchester sonic anemometer based at the forest in-canopy site located at the FACE (Forests Absorbing CO2 Emissions) nursery at the Sabahmas Estate oil plantation in Malaysia.

The dataset contains measurements of concentrations of aerosols between 50nm and 2nm, using a TSI Condesation Particle Counter model 3025A, near ground level below the rainforest canopy at the nursery site. These data were collected from the 9th to 23rd of July 2008 by the University of Manchester condensation particle counter based at the forest in-canopy site located at the FACE (Forests Absorbing CO2 Emissions) nursery at the Sabahmas Estate oil plantation in Malaysia.

This dataset contains measurements of mixing ratios of NO, NO2, NOX, and O3, using different gaseous precursors and concentrations. The following precursors were used: Alpha-pinene, Beta-caryophyllene, Isoprene, Limonene, Linalool, Myrcene at the following concentrations: 30 parts per billion, 50 parts per billion, 250 parts per billion

This dataset contains measurements of concentration of different sized particles, measured from ground level up to 32 metres. Data were collected for the period 13 April to 23 July 2008 by the University of Manchester GRIMM optical particle counter based at the forest in-canopy site located at the FACE (Forests Absorbing CO2 Emissions) nursery at the Sabahmas Estate oil plantation in Malaysia. Measurements were made at fixed heights of ground level, 8 metres, 16 metres, and 32 metres. Measurements were also taken whilst the instrument was mounted on a winch which had a height range of 1 metre to 28 metres.

  • ACCACIA was part of the NERC Arctic research programme. (NERC Reference: NE/I028858/1). ACCACIA aimed to improve our understanding of aerosol-cloud interactions in the Arctic, and the potential changes and feedbacks that may result from decreasing Arctic sea ice cover in the future. In situ measurements have been made during two field campaigns utilising ship-based measurements of surface aerosol sources and airborne measurements of aerosol and cloud microphysical properties, boundary layer dynamics, and radiative forcing. The observations have been complemented by modelling studies on a range of scales: from explicit aerosol and cloud microphysics process modelling, through large eddy simulation and mesoscale models, up to global climate models. This dataset contains sulphate and organic measurements from instruments onboard RRS James Clark Ross ship cruise identifier JR20130713 (JR288).

  • The North Atlantic Marine Boundary Layer Experiment (NAMBLEX) campaign was conducted at Mace Head in Ireland from 24 July 2002 to 3 September 2002.
