Welcome to the CEDA news channel! We will post service announcements, highlights about our work, training events, vacancies and other important things here.
RPMs for the Portable Unified Model are now available from the BADC. ==================================================================== To facillitate easy installation the Met Office Portable Unified Model (PUM) RPMs for the software have been created. More information about the RPMs can be found at: http://badc.nerc.ac.uk/data/pum/rpms.html More information about the PUM code held at the BADC can be found at: http://badc.nerc.ac.uk/data/pum BADC Support 30th April 2004
There is a problem curently affecting a storage disk. This unfortunately means that some of our datasets are currently not available for download. The service will be restored as soon as possible. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause in the mean time. BADC Support 27 April 2004Read more
We have recently updated the interface to our data archive to simplify the process of downloading multiple files via the web. You can now select multiple files from multiple directories for downloading as a single gzipped tar file. For more details, go to the 'Get Data' page (http://badc.nerc.ac.uk/browse) and click on 'How to use' in the Box labelled 'Download multiple files'. BADC Support 18 March 2004Read more
New ECMWF Seasonal Forecast (hindcast) Ensemble dataset ======================================================= In support of the COAPEC Thematic Programme the BADC has extracted ECMWF Seasonal Forecast ensemble data. These data are also known as "Hindcasts" as they are forecasts run retrospectively. The dataset includes monthly means, maxima, minima and standard deviations for the available surface variables for the period 1987-2001 (with 2002 onwards currently being extracted). Atmospheric variables are only currently available as monthly means. There are 33 parameters held on surface or single levels including winds, temperatures, heat fluxes, radiation, precipitation and soil moisture. Geopotential, Temperature, Specific Humidity, Relative Vorticity and Divergence are available on pressure levels. The data is held on a regular 1.875 x 1.875 degree grid in GRIB format. For each month there are six forecast months archived, with 5 ensemble members for 10 months of the year, and 40 ensemble members in May and November of each year. The data is now available to BADC users as part of the main ECMWF Operational archive with documentation located at: http://badc.nerc.ac.uk/data/ecmwf-op/seasonal_fcs.html Further documentation on the seasonal forecasts is available at the following ECMWF links: http://www.ecmwf.int/products/forecasts/seasonal/documentation http://www.ecmwf.int/publications/newsletters/pdf/98.pdf BADC Support. 12th March 2004.Read more
