  • Data from the operational NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) output from the North Atlantic European (NAE) part of the Met Office Unified Model. The NAE model runs on a grid centred around the UK. Analyses and first forecast steps are stored to give an hourly resolution for 6 hours following each analysis time-step. This archive currently holds data from January 2012 onwards but data will be back populated for earlier years.

  • The gridded CRU TS (time-series) 3.10 data are month-by-month variations in climate over the period 1901-2009, on high-resolution (0.5x0.5 degree) grids, produced by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. CRU TS 3.10 includes variables such as cloud cover, diurnal temperature range, PET, daily mean temperature, monthly average daily minimun/maximum temperature, and vapour pressure for the period 1901-2009. Note that a corrected run of precipitation data, based on the v3.10 precipitation station data are available (e.g cru_ts_3_10_01.1901.2009.pre.dat). CRU provided the BADC with software to generate the CRU datasets in 2010, and this was used to produce CRU TS 3.10 at the BADC in early 2011. CRU TS 3.10 data were produced using the same methodology as for the 3.00 dataset. The main differences is that the 3.10 dataset extends from 1901-2009, and all of the data in this period can now be used. Slight differences may be noticed between the results for a given time/location between the 3.00 and 3.10 versions, due to additional data now being available. CRU have examined the 3.10 dataset in detail and are confident that such differences are not significant. The CRU TS 3.10 data are monthly gridded fields based on monthly observational data, which are calculated from daily or sub-daily data by National Meteorological Services and other external agents. The ASCII and netcdf data files both contain monthly mean values for the various parameters. All CRU TS output files are actual values - NOT anomalies. CRU TS data are available for download to all CEDA users.

  • Global and regional composite (Level 3) products of the MEdium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) Level 2 geophysical data are generated by the UK Multi-Mission Product Archive Facility (UK-MM-PAF)/Infoterra Ltd. One of these products: MERIS Terrestrial Chlorophyll Index (MTCI) data are available from NEODC. The products are in GEOTIFF format, on latitude-longitude geocoded grids, and are accompanied by an XML-metadata file and a JPEG browse image.

  • Numerical climate output from the DRIFT experiment run of the HadCM3 climate model as part of the NERC funded Euroclim500 project: Causes of change in European mean and extreme climate over the past 500 years. These data were produced by Andrew Schurer, Mike Mineter and Simon Tett using the HadCM3 climate model on the HECTOR supercomputer at the University of Edinburgh. This dataset includes data from the r1 ensemble run with the following constant forcing set (bracketed dates indicate the year or range of constant forcing): Solar (850), Volcs (800-850), GHGs (800-850), LUSE (825), O3 (pre-industrial) and Orb (825). The data are available in CF-netCDF to all registered users under the UK Government Open Data License.
