NCEO Data Services

Lead Research Organisation: National Centre for Earth Observation

Abstract

The Centre for Environmental Data Archival (CEDA) provides the infrastructure to deliver a range of computer-based data management and research services for NCEO and wider NERC environmental science, including those related to 'big data' initiatives. The main NCEO-funded activites include: 1. The NERC Earth Observation Data Centre (NEODC) which is the NERC designated data,centre for earth observation science, responsible for the active curation and dissemination of relevant NERC environmental data holdings. 2. The academic component of the facility for Climate and Environmental Monitoring from Space (CEMS-A), providing data access and research services on behalf of NCEO. Both NEODC and CEMS exploit the JASMIN super computing environment located at CEDA/STFC.
 
Description CEMS is a facility to process, manage and distribute large datasets, produced from satellites monitoring the Earth's environment. The Facility for Climate and Environmental Monitoring from Space (CEMS) is a data centre based at Harwell's Science and Innovation Campus, for managing and processing large and complex datasets. With both Government and industrial sponsorship, CEMS has facilitated public-private sector partnerships to develop and expand the UK space industry. Government investment has enabled CEMS to play a key role in delivering UK Space Agency application development programmes. Discussion is taking place with the European Space Agency for CEMS to become a major data access and processing node for ESA data from the climate initiative programmes. CEMS has partnered industry (such as Infoterra) and provides facilities for small and medium-sized businesses in the space sector (such as Magellium), providing a major impact on the development of the expertise within the UK space sector, and downstream commercial products.
Exploitation Route Users across NCEO and also outside perform scientific calculations on CEMS and use datasets stored on CEDA, encompassing data volumes and processing speeds unavailable at their home institutions.
Sectors Aerospace, Defence and Marine,Agriculture, Food and Drink,Digital/Communication/Information Technologies (including Software),Education,Environment

 
Description NERC data centres operated by CEDA are made available to users worldwide. During 2016 for example, 2320 users downloaded 538.7TB of Earth Observation Data in 5.7 million files. These users were based in UK (62%), Europe (11%) and beyond, spanning universities (74%), government (12%) and other, including commercial, applications, across 15 research domains.

Title Global height-resolved multi-year ozone data sets from GOME-1, GOME-2, SCIAMACHY and OMI 
Description Global multi-year height-resolved ozone data sets from the GOME-1, GOME-2, SCIAMACHY and OMI satellite sensors, spanning 1995-2016 are being produced from the state-of-the-art retrieval scheme developed by RAL Remote Sensing-Group, whose development was funded by NERC-NCEO. These data sets are being produced in ESA's Climate Change Initiative and will be extended through the Copernicus Climate Change Service. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact Sub-sets of data from GOME-1 and GOME-2A have been provided to UK University partners and international partners. On the basis of the quality of the data, ECMWF has selected this for the next major re-analysis (ERA-5) and a near-real time production chain has been established for trial assimilation by ECMWF Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service for MetOp-A and now also -B. 
 
Title Global multi-year cloud and aerosol data set from ATSR-2 and AATSR 
Description A first version of global multi-year cloud and aerosol data sets has been produced from ATSR-2 and AATSR by the Optimal Retrieval of Aerosol & Cloud (ORAC) scheme developed by RAL Remote-Sensing Group and U.Oxford funded through NERC-NCEO and recently ESA climate Change Initiative. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact The state-of-the-art ORAC scheme is now being further developed to produce (a) a joint cloud/aerosol product which is radiatively self-consistent and homogeneous for climate research applications and (b) top-of-atmosphere and surface shortwave and longwave radiative fluxes, including photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), to expand the range of climate applications and potentially to serve new applications such as solar energy and agriculture. The scheme is also being implemented for the MSG SEVIRI geostationary satellite in an NRT chain, with a view to serving operational applications for air quality and volcanic ash detection for aviation, and is to be implemented for HIMAWARI-8 for detection of smoke plumes from Indonesian fires which are a major air quality issue in SE Asia. 
 
Title RAL IASI version 1 methane 
Description Version 1 of RAL's multi-year, global, height-resolved methane data set retrieved from IASI on MetOp-A. The data set comprises methane profiles and column-average mixing rations along with co-retrieved geophysical variables (surface temperature, water vapour and HDO) together with error covariance matrices and vertical averaging kernels. The retrieval scheme adopted ECMWF ERA-Interim atmospheric temperature distributions and, as a priori information, also surface temperature and humidity distributions, and the U.Wisconsin data base for surface spectral emissivity. An effective cloud fraction and cloud-top pressure were co-retrieved by exploiting N2O lines in the same spectral band (7.9 micron) as methane, on the basis that the N2O distribution could be specified accurately. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2016 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact The retrieval scheme used to produce this Version 1 data set has subsequently been improved by adopting atmospheric temperature, surface temperature, humidity and surface spectral emissivity which have been pre-retrieved from IASI jointly with co-located observations by the microwave sounders AMSU and MHS on MetOp. This improved version of the methane scheme, together with the MetOp pre-retrieval scheme, have been used to produce a data set sampled globally 2007-17 one day per month, and has also implemented in a pilot near-real time data processing system at RAL. 
 
Title RAL Version 1 IMS data set 
Description This Version 1 multi-year, global data set produced with RAL's Infrared and Microwave Sounding (IMS) scheme comprises surface temperature, atmospheric temperature, humidity and ozone profiles, surface spectral emissivity and effective cloud fraction and cloud-top pressure retrieved jointly from IASI, AMSU and MHS on MetOp. The data set also includes covariance matrices and vertical averaging kernels. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2018 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact The IMS Version 1 height-resolved water vapour data are contributing to the ESA Climate Change Initiative. Through use of IMS Version 1 met data in place of ECMWF ERA-Interim data (lower resolution), the accuracy of RAL's IAS methane retrieval scheme has been improved. The Version 1 scheme has been implemented in a pilot near-real time processing chain. The Version 1 IMS scheme has subsequently been extended to shorter wavelengths and developed further to cover trace gases CO, ammonia, methanol, SO2 and HNO3 together with dust and sulphuric acid aerosol.

PI Contribution Based on schemes for height-resolved ozone and aerosol retrieval developed through NERC NCEO and applied extensively in ESA's Climate Change Initiative (C3S), our team has involvement in the first phase of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, led by ECMWF. Multi-year global satellite data sets on ozone and aerosol are to be produced using the JASMIN computer infrastructure at RAL managed by CEDA. Our retrieval scheme for satellite uv nadir sounders provides sensitivity to tropospheric as well as stratospheric ozone. Our aerosol retrieval scheme (ORAC) was first developed for the dual-view ATSR-2 and is now applicable to a range of satellite vis/ir dual- and single-view imagers.
Collaborator Contribution The C3S ozone and aerosol projects are led by, respectively, BIRA-IASB (Belgium) and DLR (Germany), and involve consortia of European partners: C3S ozone - LATMOS/IPSL(France), DLR (Germany), U.Bremen (Germany), KNMI (Netherlands), Telespazio-Vega (UK), FMI (Finland) C3S aerosol - FMI (Finland), ICARE (France), MET-NO (Norway), ULB (Belgium), BIRA-IASB (Belgium), LMD (France), U.Bremen (Germany), U.Swansea (UK) Our partners provide multi-year global satellite data sets on ozone or aerosol which complement those from our group. In the case of ozone, our partners provide total columns, stratospheric profiles from limb-sounders or height-resolved data from ir nadir sounders whose height-sensitivity differs from that of the uv nadir sounders for which we are responsible. In the case of aerosol, our partners provide stratospheric profiles from limb sounders, optical properties from ir nadir sounders to augment particle size and type information from vis/near-ir wavelengths for which we are responsible, or else aerosol optical depth and other properties from vis/near-ir sensors with which to compare to ours.

Collaborator Contribution The C3S ozone and aerosol projects are led by, respectively, BIRA-IASB (Belgium) and DLR (Germany), and involve consortia of European partners: C3S ozone - LATMOS/IPSL(France), DLR (Germany), U.Bremen (Germany), KNMI (Netherlands), Telespazio-Vega (UK), FMI (Finland) C3S aerosol - FMI (Finland), ICARE (France), MET-NO (Norway), ULB (Belgium), BIRA-IASB (Belgium), LMD (France), U.Bremen (Germany), U.Swansea (UK) Our partners provide multi-year global satellite data sets on ozone or aerosol which complement those from our group. In the case of ozone, our partners provide total columns, stratospheric profiles from limb-sounders or height-resolved data from ir nadir sounders whose height-sensitivity differs from that of the uv nadir sounders for which we are responsible. In the case of aerosol, our partners provide stratospheric profiles from limb sounders, optical properties from ir nadir sounders to augment particle size and type information from vis/near-ir wavelengths for which we are responsible, or else aerosol optical depth and other properties from vis/near-ir sensors with which to compare to ours.
Impact The C3S collaboration is only just commencing.

Title Near Real-Time Processing chains for MetOp and MSG 
Description A near real-time processing chain for the MetOp satellite has been designed and implemented on the JASMIN infrastructure at RAL. The system produces height-resolved ozone data from GOME-2A and -2B and also methane data from IASI. A near real-time processing chain is being implemented for particulates from MSG SEVIRI in geostationary orbit. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2016 
Impact ECMWF is evaluating the ozone data from MetOp-A for assimilation into the CAMS system. A pre-processor for temperature, humidity, ozone and surface emissivity from MetOp-A IASI, MHS and AMSU-B is being implemented on JASMIN. It is intended to adapt and transfer the MetOp system to process co-located Sentinel-5P and Suomi-NPP CrIS data. Additional target species could also potentially be added. The processing chain for SEVIRI particulates is to be expanded to process data from HIMAWARI-8 over SE Asia.
