  • The Greenland Flow Distortion EXperiment investigates the role of Greenland in defining the structure and the predictability of both local and downstream weather systems, through a programme of aircraft-based observation and numerical modelling. The Greenland Flow Distortion Experiment (GFDex) will provide some of the first detailed in situ observations of the intense atmospheric forcing events that are thought to be important in modifying the ocean in this area (but are presently poorly understood): namely tip jets, barrier winds and mesoscale cyclones. The dataset contains cloud cover, precipitation, temperature and wind data.

  • Chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer and the Interface with Snow (CHABLIS) is a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI) funded project, aimed at studying the chemistry of the Antarctic Boundary Layer in greater detail, and for a longer duration, than has previously been attempted. Field measurements were carried out at the British Antarctic Survey station, Halley, at the Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab). Year-round measurements began in February 2004, and a summer campaign focussing on oxidants ran during January/February 2005, after which CHABLIS fieldwork ended. The dataset contains toal peroxy radical measurements during the CHABLIS summer intensive at Halley. Access to this dataset is now public.

  • The European Arctic Stratospheric Ozone Experiment is a European Commission (EC) measurement campaign undertaken in the Northern Hemisphere winter of 1991-92 to study ozone chemistry and dynamics. This dataset contains vertical column measurements of H2O, HDO, N2O, CH4, O3, HF, HCl, ClONO2, HNO3, CFC-11 and CFC-12 from BOMEM-DA2 ground-based experiment.

  • The European Arctic Stratospheric Ozone Experiment is a European Commission (EC) measurement campaign undertaken in the Northern Hemisphere winter of 1991-92 to study ozone chemistry and dynamics. This dataset contains O3 Low resolution DOAS specrometer measurements.

  • The European Arctic Stratospheric Ozone Experiment is a European Commission (EC) measurement campaign undertaken in the Northern Hemisphere winter of 1991-92 to study ozone chemistry and dynamics. This dataset contains meteorological parameters from the Central Aerological Observatory in Russia.

  • The European Arctic Stratospheric Ozone Experiment is a European Commission (EC) measurement campaign undertaken in the Northern Hemisphere winter of 1991-92 to study ozone chemistry and dynamics. This dataset contains vertical column measurements of NO2, O3 and OClO.

  • The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Data Distribution Centre provides four main types of data and guidance: 1. Observed Climate Data Sets; 2. Global Climate Model Data; 3. Socio-economic data and scenarios; 4. Data and scenarios for other environmental changes.

  • The 'Measurement of H2O Absorption Cross-Sections for the Exploitation of GOME’ project is a European Space Agency (ESA) funded study. The GOME (Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment) instruments are downward-viewing satellite-borne spectrometers. The study, undertaken between April 1999 and August 2000, has significantly improved knowledge of the absorption cross-sections and line parameters for water vapour in the near-infrared and visible spectral regions through a powerful combination of laboratory measurements, spectral analysis, and theoretical calculations. The dataset contains distributions and vertical profiles of atmospheric chemical species (in particular ozone) as well as the distribution of trace atmospheric species. This dataset is public.

  • CCMVal was a large international effort to improve understanding of Chemistry-Climate Models (CCMs) and their underlying GCMs (General Circulation Models) through process-oriented evaluation, along with discussion and coordinated analysis of science results. The first round of CCMVal (CCMVal-1) evaluated only a limited set of key processes in the CCMs, focusing mainly on dynamics and transport. This dataset contains UMSLIMCAT model output from the WMO 2006 REF2 experiment run by the University of Leeds.
