Supporting model output from the Met Office's Air Quality Unified Model (AQUM) were made available to participants during the NERC funded RONOCO (ROle of Nighttime chemistry in controlling the Oxidising Capacity of the AtmOsphere) consortium project. The overall objective of this consortium project was to advance substantially our understanding of night-time chemical processes and their impacts on the troposphere through a combined programme of instrument development, airborne measurements and numerical modelling.

Process overview

This dataset was generated by the computation detailed below.

Met Office operational unified model (UM) deployed on Met Office Computer network


This computation involved: Met Office operational unified model (UM) deployed on Met Office Computer network. The Unified Model is the name given to the suite of atmospheric and oceanic numerical modelling software developed and used at the Met Office. The formulation of the model supports global and regional domains and is applicable to a wide range of temporal and spatial scales that allow it to be used for both numerical weather prediction and climate modelling as well as a variety of related research activities. The Unified Model was introduced into operational service in 1992. Since then, both its formulation and capabilities have been substantially enhanced.
