Hydrological Radar Experiment (HYREX) data from the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC)

Abstract: The Hydrological Radar Experiment (HYREX) was a UK Natural Environment
Research Council (NERC) Special Topic which ran from May 1993 to April
1997. The broad aim of HYREX was to gain a better understanding of
rainfall variability, as sensed by weather radar, and how this
variability impacts on river flow at the catchment scale.

Six projects were funded involving groups from the Institute of

Access Constraints Access to data provided by the UKMO (UM model runs and radar data from
Wardon Hill and Cobbacombe) is restricted. To gain access to these
data, please complete a HYREX conditions of use form and return it to
us. You will then be given access to these datasets via an account on
a BADC computer.

All other data are freely available. However, data from the common
experimental infrastructure are transferred to BADC at least one year
in arrears, in order to allow time for quality checks and to give
HYREX researchers the first opportunity to make use of the data.
Use Constraints If you publish work that uses the HYREX data, please acknowledge that
the data used were supplied by the British Atmospheric Data Centre
from the NERC Hydrological Radar Experiment Dataset
