The Utah urban carbon dioxide (UUCON) and Uintah Basin greenhouse gas networks: instrumentation, data, and measurement uncertainty

Ryan Bares et al.

Data sets

Atmospheric measurements of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from the state of Utah from 2014-09-10 to 2018-04-01 (NCEI Accession 0183632) R. Bares, J. C., Lin, B. Fasoli, L. E. Mitchell, D. R. Bowling, M. Garcia, D. Catharine, and J. R. Ehleringer

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) mole fraction, CO2 flux, and others collected from Salt Lake City CO2 measurement network in Western U.S. from 2001-02-07 to 2015-10-23 (NCEI Accession 0170450) L. E. Mitchell, J. C. Lin, D. R. Bowling, D. E. Pataki, C. Strong, A. J. Schauer, R. Bares, S. E. Bush, B. B. Stephens, D. Mendoza, D. Mallia, L. Holland, K. R. Gurney, and J. R. Ehleringer

Short summary
We overview two near-surface trace gas measurement networks with the aim of describing procedures, locations, and data structure with sufficient detail to serve as an in-depth method reference. Additionally, we developed a novel method for quantifying measurement uncertainty produced by these networks providing insight into appropriate applications of the data and differences in data collection methods. This uncertainty metric is broadly applicable to many trace gas and air quality datasets.
