Abstract

The Coupled Ocean Atmosphere and European Climate (COAPEC) is a NERC thematic programme designed to examine the variability of the Earth's climate. The goal of COAPEC is to determine the impact on climate, especially European climate, of the coupling between the Atlantic Ocean and the atmosphere. The British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) is the primary distribution data centre for COAPEC. This dataset contains freshwater flux climatology data from the Southampton Oceanographic Centre (SOC).

Data lineage:

To aid researchers within the Coupled Ocean Atmosphere and European Climate (COAPEC) programme, datasets have been retrieved from a variety of coupled models including: The 1000 year HadCM3 dataset has been extracted from the Met Office and these data have been added to the archive at the BADC; The data from a 500 year HadCM3 control integration performed on a linux Beowulf cluster using UM (Unified Model) version 4.5 at the BADC has recently been included in the archive.

Data Quality:
not known
