This dataset consists of several different data streams, all recorded at the same location (Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire, UK, http://www.stfc.ac.uk/chilbolton/default.aspx).

Raw and preprocessed observations of meteorological phenomena

Storage:
Data are stored in NetCDF format with images for the two dimensional datasets provided in png format.

Some of the older Chilbolton data on the BADC are in different formats. Early drop counting raingauge data are in ASCII format. Radar data from the winter of 1998-99 are stored in a simple ASCII format with composite images comparing radar, ceilometer, rain gauge and ECMWF data each day in gif format.

Need to have ability to accurately and easily cite a subset of the CFARR data over a set time period, but including multiple instruments.
