Archived Data 

The AMF provides a wide range of archived data products. Archived data are formatted following either netCDF, NASA AMES, or BADC-tsv format and follow the AMF file naming, null data, quality flag, and structure protocols.

As part of the NCAS Data Project AMF is reviewing how it archives its data and a number of new data standards are under development: this standard includes the names by which instruments are referenced in the CEDA archive. As of 01/04/2018 all new AMF data delivered to the CEDA data archive will follow these standards and the instrument names appearing on this site will be updated as this deadline approaches. Over time and as resources allow the archive of pre 2018 data will be upgraded to follow the new standard.

Full details of the standards being developed can be found here: this is still a work in progress and we welcome any feedback: please let us know what you think by dropping us a line on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Tools to aid access and visualisation of these file types are also provided.

Long-term measurements are free and open access and made available through CEDA as monthly and annual files: you will need to have a CEDA account. Long-term measurement datasets are available from the following Observatories:
  •  Cape Verde Atmospheric Observatory (CVAO)
  • Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO)
  • NFARR MST Radar facility - Capel Dewi, Aberystwyth
  • Boundary Layer Wind Profiler- Cardington Airfield, Bedfordshire
  • BT Tower - London
  • Icelandic Atmospheric Observatory (IAO)
  • NFARR Chilbolton Atmospheric Observatory

AMF campaign data products are those that can be provided with minimal post processing over and above quality checking. Processing and delivery of data to CEDA takes no more than 2 person months.
Our instrumentation have taken part in a wide range of campaigns both here and across the world and data from these programs become open access 2 years after their date of collection in accordance with NERC policy. The data is archived at CEDA and to access it you will need to have a CEDA account.
The links below list the data available from NCAS – AMF, and its predecessors FGAM and UFAM.

We also provide quick look field data during campaigns. These data follow no protocols and are provided in the most convenient form. It is not made available through CEDA, it is not quality controlled or documented and should not be considered publishable. Direct transfer of preliminary data in the field may be necessary and AMF will, where at all possible, arrange common electronic sharing mechanisms.
The Data Policy lays out the details concerning access, attribution, and sharing of data and by accessing the data products of the facility users agree to abide by this policy.
