Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO): surface meteorology and atmospheric chemistry data

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published


The Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA). It is situated on the north Norfolk coast and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC. The WAO has also been the focus of many international experiments designed to into the chemistry of the planetary boundary layer and free troposphere. WAO is an NCAS facility. The dataset contains meteorological data such as wind speed, wind direction, humidity, atmospheric pressure, solar irradiance and net irradiance, SoDAR wind profiler data, sonic anemometer data, and Chemistry data such as ozone, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen gas chromatograms for measurements of VOC's and GHG's (Volatile Organic Compounds / Green-House Gases, respectively. In addition, cloud condensation nuclei measurements are available.
