  • High frequency measurements of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and carbon monoxide (CO) made at Bilsdale Tall Tower, North York Moors National Park were made for the UK-DECC (Deriving Emissions related to Climate Change) Network. Bilsdale (BSD) tall tower is in a remote area of the North York Moors National Park and is the first monitoring site in the northeast region of England. The closest large conurbations are York and Middlesbrough, located 30 miles south and 16 miles northeast, respectively. The tower is on a high plateau overlooking green valleys used mainly for livestock (sheep and cattle). Between 2014-01-01 and 2017-03-17, air samples are taken from a line sampling 108 m above ground level. From 2017-03-17 onwards, air was sampled from 248 m above ground level. Due to the sites location, far from strong sources of local pollution, measurements from this site will be used to calculate emission maps of trace gas species in the UK in combination with other measurement stations in the UK (Ridge Hill, Tacolneston and Heathfield) and Ireland (Mace Head). This work was funded by Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) contracts TRN1028/06/2015 and TRN1537/06/2018 to the University of Bristol.
