  • Supporting material for "Importance of the Pre-Industrial Baseline in Determining the Likelihood of Exceeding the Paris Limits" 

    Schurer, Andrew
    During the Paris Conference in 2015, nations of the world strengthened the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change by agreeing to holding ‘the increase in the global average temperature to well below ...
  • Ancillary data used for global GPP simulations by the JULES land surface model for 2001-2010 

    Slevin, Darren
    This dataset contains the ancillary data (soil, vegetation, etc) used for simulations of Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) by the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) Land Surface Model (LSM) at global scales for ...
  • Heating and cooling degree days projections for the UK: version 1 

    Holmes, Caroline
    This dataset was produced for the study "What is the uncertainty in degree day projections due to different calibration methodologies?" (Holmes et al, 2016, Journal of Climate, submitted). Heating and Cooling degree day ...
  • Global GPP simulated by the JULES land surface model for 2001-2010 

    Slevin, Darren; Tett, Simon; Williams, Mat
    This study evaluates the ability of the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) Land Surface Model (LSM), the land surface scheme of the UK Met Office Unified Model (MetUM), to simulate Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) ...
  • How does grid-resolution modulate geomorphic processes: data 

    Grieve, Stuart; NERC - Natural Environment Research Council; U.S. Army Research Office
    In many locations, our ability to study the processes which shape the Earth are greatly enhanced through the use of high resolution digital topographic data. However, although the availability of such datasets has markedly ...
  • A nondimensional relief framework: data 

    Grieve, Stuart; Mudd, Simon; Hurst, Martin; Milodowski, David
    Considering the relationship between erosion rate and the relief structure of a landscape within a nondimensional framework facilitates the comparison of landscapes undergoing forcing at a range of scales, and allows ...
  • DrEICH algorithm 

    Clubb, Fiona; Mudd, Simon; Milodowski, David; Hurst, Martin; Slater, Louise (University of Edinburgh. School of GeoSciences, 2014-02-10)
    Fluvial landscapes are dissected by channels, and at their upstream termini are channel heads. Accurate reconstruction of the fluvial domain is fundamental to understanding runoff generation, storm hydrology, biogeochemical ...
  • Refractive indices (500-3500 cm-) and emissivity (600-3350 cm-1) of pure water and seawater 

    Embury, Owen; Merchant, Christopher; Filipiak, Mark (2008-09-22)
    Tables of infrared refractive indices have been compiled and calculations made of emissivity for pure water and seawater (35 PSU), suitable for radiative transfer simulation of observations of thermal imagers, such as the ...
