Abstract

Data from the operational NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) output from the Met Office Unified Model. These data are from both the Global and the North Atlantic European (NAE) part of the model. The NAE model runs on a grid centred around the UK. Analyses and intermediate forecast steps are stored to give an hourly time resolution for 6 hours following each analysis time-step. This archive only holds data to January 2012. A new NWP archive is being populated with data from January 2012.

Citable as:  Met Office (2016): Met Office Unified Model (UM) Operational Output: Model levels and Standard levels data. NCAS British Atmospheric Data Centre, date of citation. http://catalogue.ceda.ac.uk/uuid/93fa9b8df82d440bb149185d2d046dc6
Abbreviation: Not defined
