Data sets

Observations of CO2, CH4, and CO mole fractions from the NIST Northeast Corridor urban testbed Karion, A., Whetstone, J. R., and Callahan, W.

Short summary
Our paper presents atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane in the northeastern United States. We also describe the collection, quality control, and uncertainty estimation methods associated with the observations. The network is composed of 23 tower-based stations, including a dense sub-network in the Washington, DC, and Baltimore, Maryland, urban areas. Observations can be used to assess greenhouse gas emissions from these cities and regions.
