The CEDA Archive is the national data centre for atmospheric and earth observation research. We host over 15 Petabytes of atmospheric and earth observation data. Sources include aircraft campaigns, satellites, automatic weather stations and climate models, amongst many more. 


The CEDA Archive 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.

Prior to November 2016, these functions were operated by CEDA under the titles of the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) and the NERC Earth Observation Data Centre (NEODC).

To search the data catalogue, access data, or archive your data - see the CEDA Archive website here for more information.
