Welcome to CEDA!
The Centre for Environmental Data Analysis is an organisation that serves the environmental science community by the provision of data centres, data analysis & access, and research project participation.
Services we run
The CEDA Archive is the national data centre for atmospheric and earth observation and forms part of NERC’s Environmental Data Service - a network of data centres covering all aspects of environmental science. Our team coordinate data management on behalf of NERC for the UK atmospheric science and earth observation communities.
We hold data covering climate, composition, observations and numerical weather prediction as well as various earth observation datasets, including airborne and satellite data and imagery. Our main goal is to ensure that atmospheric and earth observation data are made available and accessible to all in order to fully realise their reuse potential.
JASMIN is a globally unique data intensive supercomputer for environmental science. JASMIN supports the data analysis requirements of the UK and European climate and earth system modelling community. It consists of multi-Petabyte fast storage co-located with data analysis computing facilities, with dedicated light paths to various key facilities and institutes within the community. Find out how to register for a JASMIN account here.
CEDA also provide support for numerous other organisations and external projects. We run the UK Solar System Data Centre (UKSSDC) co-funded by STFC and NERC, curates and provides access to archives of data from the upper atmosphere, ionosphere and Earth’s solar environment.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. We run the IPCC Data Distribution Centre which provides climate, socio-economic and environmental data, both from the past and also in scenarios projected into the future.
