FAAM's data are stored within the CEDA archive

FAAM's Data Processing is documented online at

Calibrated CORE data

FAAM data version and revision number is default Version and Revision Numbers of Data Processing Software (1 KB) (January 2008)

FAAM will provide the Centre for Environmental Data Archival (CEDA) with calibrated CORE data from all science flights as netCDF, a 1Hz dataset is also available. FAAM normally aim to to do this within one working day but this can be difficult when on detachment with poor internet connections. In these circumstances alternative local arrangements will be made to deliver the data to participating scientists as soon as practicable.

A list of FAAM data files is available: icon List of FAAM Data Products available from CEDA (48.05 kB).

A list of FAAM parameter names is available icon Updated Parameter Names (10.69 kB).

CEDA distribute FAAM data via their FAAM data pages.

FAAM also provides the following Metadata:

  • Descriptions of parameters
  • Data formats
  • Quality assessments
  • Video files
  • Log sheets - all hand written log sheets and associated charts will be scanned post-flight and archived at the FAAM CEDA site, normally as a single PDF file for each flight.

Specific projects that have their own web pages are encouraged to provide links to the CEDA FAAM site where appropriate. If a specific project requires the CORE data in any other form or format it is the responsibility of the Principal Investigators to extract data from the FAAM archive and convert it.

Groups who develop software for the analysis and visulization of FAAM data are encouraged to make it available to all users. (e.g. GFDex MATLAB code).

Raw Data

FAAM will archive all raw data from all CORE instruments in their raw format at CEDA. Access to this data will normally be restricted to FAAM staff. Others with a need for raw data should contact FAAM in the first instance. 

All Parameters

A list has been prepared of all of the parameters (potentially) available from all of the instruments (which may be) fitted to the ARA.  You can download it in PDF form here.  If you have any queries about it, please contact Guy Gratton.
