Abstract

Land surface and marine surface observations data from the Met Office station network and other world wide stations as stored in the Met Office MIDAS database. Data are available for the period 1853 to present. The dataset comprises daily and hourly weather measurements, hourly wind parameters, max and min air temperatures, soil temperatures, sunshine duration and radiation measurements and daily, hourly and sub-hourly rain measurements, some climatology data and marine observations (including sea surface temperature, swell and wave associated parameters). This dataset collection supersedes the Met Office Land Surface Stations Dataset collection (1900-2000), also archived at the BADC.
