Abstract

The Cloud and Water Vapour Experiment (CWAVE) was a measurement campaign at the CCLRC-Chilbolton Observatory; it was supporting associated with two EC FP5 projects, CLOUDMAP2 and CLOUDNET. A wide range of satellite and ground based instruments measured a variety of atmospheric properties ranging from cloud parameters to water vapour. In addition, the measurements coincided with the results from a reduced resolution Unified Model (UM) run by the Met Office. This dataset contains Met Office Microwave radiometer (MP series) temperature, water vapour and liquid profiles at Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR)
