  • The Contrail Forecast Verification Experiment (COVEX) was a Met Office experiment to validate the new contrail forecasting techniques based on engine parameters and environmental conditions. It was based on a one-flight experiment on board the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Research (FAAM) aircraft, that took place in December 2004.

  • The European AQUA Thermodynamic Experiment (EAQUATE) was a study of the atmosphere, the land surface and the ocean surface by means of a range of airborne high resolution souders, in conjunction with observations from the Aqua and Aura satellites. The EAQUATE archive held at the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) includes data collected aboard the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) Bae 146 aircraft based at Cranfield, UK, during four flights in September 2004.

  • ERA5 is the latest European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) global atmospheric reanalysis of the period 1979 to present. This follows on from the ERA-15, ERA-40 and ERA-Interim re-analysis projects. This dataset collection includes data on surface and model levels on a regular latitude-longitude grid in netCDF from : - a high resolution 'HRES' (31 km horizontal, 137 model level, hourly output) reanalysis model - a reduced resolution ten member member ensemble runs, including data from all 10 members as well as means and spreads - produced to provide an uncertainty estimate for the 'HRES' output. - initial release 'ERA5t' data - re-run model output for 2000-2006 to address issues for this period - ERA5.1 Note, the parameter selection for the data held in the CEDA archive is not the full range of available parameters. Users requiring other parameters or data on alternative level types should seek these products via the Copernicus Data Store (CDS) - see linked data tool resource. For further details of the datasets and CEDA's holdings please see the individual datasets linked to on this dataset collection record.

  • This collection contains version 4.0 datasets produced by the Ocean Colour project of the ESA Climate Change Inititative (CCI). The Ocean Colour CCI is producing long-term multi-sensor time-series of satellite ocean-colour data with a particular focus for use in climate studies. Data products being produced include: phytoplankton chlorophyll-a concentration; remote-sensing reflectance at six wavelengths; total absorption and backscattering coefficients; phytoplankton absorption coefficient and absorption coefficients for dissolved and detrital material; and the diffuse attenuation coefficient for downwelling irradiance for light of wavelength 490 nm. Information on uncertainties is also provided. This dataset collection refers to the Version 4.0 data products held in the CEDA archive covering the period 1997-2018. Links to the individual datasets that make up this collection are given in the record below.

  • Atmospheric chemistry measurements were made during a series of campaign flights by the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements' (FAAM) BAE-146 research aircraft as part of the NERC funded RONOCO (ROle of Nighttime chemistry in controlling the Oxidising Capacity of the AtmOsphere) consortium project. These campaign data are available along with model output from the Met Office's Air Quality Unified Model (AQUM). The scientific objectives of RONOCO were to determine the morphology of tropospheric NO3 in different meteorological conditions and seasons, and in a range of gas phase and aerosol environments, in order to quantify the key processes and pathways of oxidized nitrogen chemistry at night in the troposphere. The ultimate aim was to assess the pervasiveness and importance of night time chemical processes, and in particular NO3, for UK regional and Western European air quality, eutrophication, and ultimately to quantify its linkages to climate change. The dataset contains images from the model output in png format.

  • The CRU CY datasets consists of country averages at a monthly, seasonal and annual frequency, for ten climate variables in 289 countries. Spatial averages are calculated using area-weighted means. Variables include cloud cover (cld), diurnal temperature range (dtr), frost day frequency (frs), precipitation (pre), daily mean temperature (tmp), monthly average daily maximum (tmx) and minimum (tmn) temperature, vapour pressure (vap), Potential Evapo-transpiration (pet) and wet day frequency (wet). The CRU CY datasets produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. Spatial averages are calculated using area-weighted means. CRU CY is derived directly from the CRU TS dataset and version numbering is matched between the two datasets. Thus, the first official version of CRU CY is v3.21, as it is based on CRU TS v3.21 (1901-2012) and the latest version of CRU-CY is v4.03, as it is based on CRU TS v4.03. The data are available as text files with the extension '.per' and can be opened by most text editors. To understand the CRU-CY dataset, it is important to understand the construction and limitations of the underlying dataset, CRU TS. It is therefore recommended that all users read the paper referenced below (Harris et al, 2014).

  • This dataset collection contains air quality data from the Air Pollution & Human Health in a Developing Indian Megacity (APHH-India) programme 'Megacity Delhi atmospheric emission quantification, assessment and impacts (DelhiFlux)'.

  • World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6): Collection of simulations from the Met Office Hadley Centre (MOHC) HadGEM3-GC31-MM model. The official CMIP6 Citation, and its associated DOI, is provided as an online resource linked to this record.

  • World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6): Collection of simulations from the Beijing Climate Center (BCC) BCC-CSM2-HR model. The official CMIP6 Citation, and its associated DOI, is provided as an online resource linked to this record.

  • The Atmospheric Chemistry Studies in the Oceanic Environment (ACSOE) was a 5-year Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) programme on tropospheric chemistry coordinated by the University of East Anglia and involving research groups from a number of UK universities and research institutes. The project had three consortia of UK institutes and universities, each of which focused on a different scientific topic. OXICOA (OXIdising Capacity of the Ocean Atmosphere) was a study of oxidant, radical and related gas-phase chemistry in the clean and moderately polluted marine atmosphere. The Eastern Atlantic Spring/Summer Experiments (EASE-96 and EASE-97) were carried to collect data. The dataset includes measurements of the OH and HO2 radicals, measurements of halogen oxide radicals at Mace Head in conjunction with a survey of potential organic halogen source gases. In EASE 96 the Cranfield Jetstream aircraft was deployed to measure the vertical and horizontal homogeneity of the air mass.
