OZONEPROF Station Network

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


Observation stations within the OZONEPROF station network transmit their observations in the form of an OZONEPROF message. Observations by ozonesondes at fixed land stations are taken weekly, and the results are transmitted in the OZONEPROF message. The OZONEPROF message contains measurements of atmospheric profiles of ozone concentrations.

Operational Details
  1. Transmission of OZONEPROF messages

    The OZONEPROF network uses ozonesondes to probe the atmosphere and measure parameters such as ozone content, and ozone partial pressure. The measurements are then sent to the observing station via a radio link. Ingest scripts run at the BADC every 20 minutes, converting the incoming files to the self describing BADC-CSV format, but neither the processed or raw data are placed into archive until the following day. The relevant parameters are stored in the MetDB dataset on the BADC website.

Who to contact

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.
