Observation stations within the ESAWRADT (Enhanced Synoptic Automatic Weather station RADiaTion) Station Network transmit their observations in the form of an ESAWRADT message. The ESAWRADT message transmits hourly radiation measurements by made Enhanced Synoptic Automatic Weather Stations (ESAW). Automatic stations came into operation from the mid 1980s; as of 1996 there were 20 ESAWS reporting measurements of radiation.

More Information (under review)
For more information on the observation stations and instruments used to collect measurements which are transmitted in a ESAWRADT message, the Met Office Surface Data Users Guide, describes the meteorological surface data in the Met Office Database - MIDAS.
More information on the measurements obtained and instruments used by ESAWS is available through the BADC.
If you have queries about these pages or about obtaining the Met Office surface stations data from the BADC then you should contact CEDA Support. Your query should be answered within one working day. When follow-up work is required, the CEDA support will carry out the work as quickly and efficiently as possible, and in any case, the user will be kept informed of progress.
