A data management policy has been developed by the British Atmosphere Data Centre (BADC) linking a wide range of data sources including data sets managed by the Met Office and the Environment Agency.
Substantial new datasets will not be produced in FREE. Any data that are collected with output from numerical model runs will be preserved and will be fully documented at the BADC, NEODC, BODC, or data centres at CEH, Wallingford and BGS as appropriate.
An arrangement, known as the FLOod Action Team (FLOAT), is also in place to assemble specific data should major extreme events occur during the programme as happened during 2007 (Tewksbury).
