  • The Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) messages data describe hourly observations from around 120 stations distributed globally. The observations, which are later transmitted in reports, give measurements of parameters such as wind speed, and temperature. The data are collected by observation stations worldwide and transmitted within the RASS message.

  • Single-polar products from the Met Office's Clee Hill C-band rain radar, Shropshire, England. Data include reflectivity and augmented Doppler products from April 2012 and June 2008 respectively. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Dual-polar products from the Met Office's Castor Bay C-band rain radar, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Data include augmented ldr and zdr scan data (both long and short pulse). The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • Data were collected by the Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR) Disdrometer from the 1st of July 2004 to the present at Sparsholt College, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements of the drop size distribution of rain.

  • Single-polar products from the Met Office's Jersey C-band rain radar, Channel Islands. Data include reflectivity wand Doppler products from April 2012 and May 2014 respectively. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • 5 km resolution rain rate data from Met Office's Wardon Hill C-band rain radar, Dorset, England as part of the NIMROD, very short range forecasting system used by the Met Office. 5 km rain rate data are available from 2006 until present. Radar images from the C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar are received by the Nimrod system 5 minute intervals respectively.

  • Data were collected by Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR) Raingauges from 2001 to the present at Chilbolton, Hampshire. The dataset contains measurements of rainfall accumulation as measured by multiple instruments.

  • Single-polar products from the Met Office's Druim a'Starraig C-band rain radar, Isle of Lewis, Scotland. Data include reflectivity (from April 2012), CPA (from October 2011) and CPAPR (from September 2012). Dual-polar products from this site are available from 2018. The radar is a C-band (5.3 cm wavelength) radar and data are received by the Nimrod system at 5 minute intervals.

  • HiGEM (High Resolution Global Environmental Modelling) is a UK programme in between NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) and the Hadley Centre of the Met Office. The aim is to advance in the fidelity of simulations of the global environment by taking the new Met Office climate model (HadGEM1a) to unprecedented resolutions. The resulting simulations aim to improve our understanding of mechanisms of climate variability and change on timescales of days to centuries.

  • Data were collected from the 14th of February 2009 to the present by the Leosphere EZ polarization lidar at Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. The dataset contains plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient at different heights, and of the depolarization ratio of particles. The dataset contains: Plots of the attenuated backscatter coefficient at different heights, and of the depolarization ratio of particles. Atmospheric backscatter light intensity (raw data) Solid angle and background calibrated data Vertical backscatter and extinction profile Vertical Aerosol profile Planetary Boundary Layer and residual layer heights Semi-transparent cloud height and top Optical depth integrated over whole Lidar range Dynamic structure of the atmosphere (e.g gravity waves...) Asphericity information on the particle in order to discriminate some particles from others (soil dust from other aerosol, ice/water phase of the clouds…)
