Abstract

Data from the operational NWP (Numerical Weather Prediction) output from the global atmospheric part of the Met Office Unified Model. Analyses and first forecast steps are stored to give an hourly time resolution for 6 hours following each analysis time-step. This archive currently holds data from January 2012 onwards but data will be back populated for earlier years.

Citable as:  Met Office (2015): Data from the 25km70lev configuration of the Met Office Global NWP model - Release 01/2014. NCAS British Atmospheric Data Centre, date of citation. http://catalogue.ceda.ac.uk/uuid/f85ad3fabc0d434c97aaaa55af68fb7a
Abbreviation: UKMO-NWP-Global-r2014_01

Access rules:
Restricted data: please submit an application using the REQUEST ACCESS link for access.
Use of these data is covered by the following licence: http://licences.ceda.ac.uk/image/data_access_condition/ukmo_agreement.pdf. When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

Following data transfer issues between the Met Office and the BADC, the Met Office NWP data updates were suspended on 18th January 2012. A new data transfer route was established and at the same time, CEDA-BADC decided to revamp the entire NWP archive and created a new NWP archive. This new archive is essentially a mirror of a subset of the NWP archive at the Met Office (as extracted from the Met Office Archive Storage System (MASS)).

Data Quality:
Operational Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) data from the Met Office.
File Format:
Met Office PP format
