Supporting model output from the Met Office's Air Quality Unified Model (AQUM) were made available to participants during the NERC funded RONOCO (ROle of Nighttime chemistry in controlling the Oxidising Capacity of the AtmOsphere) consortium project. The overall objective of this consortium project was to advance substantially our understanding of night-time chemical processes and their impacts on the troposphere through a combined programme of instrument development, airborne measurements and numerical modelling.

This dataset contains model output images of chemical species. These data cover 2010 period only.

Process overview

This dataset was generated by the computation detailed below.

AQUM: Air Quality in the Unified Model deployed on unknown computer


This computation involved: AQUM: Air Quality in the Unified Model. The on-line air quality model AQUM (Air Quality in the Unified Model) is a limited-area forecast configuration of the Met Office Unified Model which uses the UKCA (UK Chemistry and Aerosols) sub-model. AQUM has been developed with two aims: as an operational system to deliver regional air quality forecasts and as a modelling system to conduct air quality studies to inform policy decisions on emissions controls.
