Abstract

The North Atlantic Marine Boundary Layer Experiment (NAMBLEX) campaign was conducted at Mace Head in Ireland from 24 July 2002 to 3 September 2002. During this campaign a suite of instruments, including several from the Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurements (UFAM). This dataset contains 21 back trajectories corresponding to arrival on all ECMWF model levels between the ground and mid-troposphere, including surface pressure, temperature, specific humidity, zonal and meridional wind speeds and height from the UK Universities Global Atmospheric Modelling Programme (UGAMP).
