Use of these data is covered by the following licence: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/. When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

Data was acquired by the UK Met Office (UKMO) C-130 aircraft during 40 hours flying time, in the spring/summer period of the 2000. Detailed meteorological and chemical forecast data were obtained from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), UKMO and the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU). Data was then passed on to the BADC where is it stored.

Data Quality:
unknown.
File Format:
Data are NASA Ames formatted
