  • The University of Leicester GOSAT Proxy XCH4 v9.0 data set contains column-averaged dry-air mole fraction of methane (XCH4) generated from the Greenhouse Gas Observing Satellite (GOSAT) Level 1B data using the University of Leicester Full-Physics retrieval scheme (UoL-FP) using the Proxy retrieval approach. This data is an NCEO funded update/extension to the European Space Agency Climate Change Initiative (CCI) CH4_GOS_OCPR V7.0. and the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) CH_4 v7.2 data sets. It's a full reprocessing, based on different underlying L1B radiance data with additional changes. The latest version of the GOSAT Level 1B files (version 210.210) was acquired directly from the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) GOSAT Data Archive Service (GDAS) Data Server and are processed with the Leicester Retrieval Preparation Toolset to extract the measured radiances along with all required sounding-specific ancillary information such as the measurement time, location and geometry. These measured radiances have the recommended radiometric calibration and degradation corrections applied as per Yoshida et al., 2013 with an estimate of the spectral noise derived from the standard deviation of the out-of-band signal. The spectral data were then inputted into the UoL-FP retrieval algorithm where the Proxy retrieval approach is used to obtain the column-averaged dry-air mole fraction of methane (XCH4). Post-filtering and bias correction against the Total Carbon Column Observing Network is then performed. See process information and documentation for further details.

  • This dataset contains Methane, Carbon Dioxide and Nitrous Oxide measurements taken from Heathfield Tower at 50m and 100m. The measurements were taken using a Gas Chromatography-micro Electron Capture Detector (GC-ECD). This data was collected as part of the NERC GAUGE (Greenhouse gAs UK and Global Emissions) project (NE/K002449/1NERC and TRN1028/06/2015). The GAUGE project aimed to produce robust estimates of the UK Greenhouse Gas budget, using new and existing measurement networks and modelling activities at a range of scales. It aimed to integrate inter- calibrated information from ground-based, airborne, ferry-borne, balloon-borne, and space-borne sensors, including new sensor technology.

  • This dataset contains methane, carbon dioxide and meteorological observations taken onboard the commercial freight ferry Finlandia Seaways on route between Rosyth (Scotland, UK: 56°1'21.611''N 3°26'21.558'' W) and Zeebrugge (Belgium : 51°21'16.96''N 3°10'34.645''E) 2015-2017 by the Centre for Ecology and hydrology (CEH). The measurements were taken using a Picarro CRDS model G1301, Vaisala WXT510 weather station and Garmin GPS.

  • This data set consist of a single file which contains a set of optimised global surface fluxes of methane (CH4), produced through variational inverse methods using the TOMCAT chemical transport model, and the INVICAT inverse transport model. These surface fluxes are produced as monthly mean values on the (approximately) 5.6-degree horizontal model grid. The associated uncertainty for the flux from each grid cell is also included. The fluxes and uncertainties are global and cover the period Jan 2010 - Dec 2018. The emissions from fossil fuels are labelled FF_FLUX, whilst the uncertainties are labelled FF_ERROR. The emissions from natural, agricultural and biomass burning sources are labelled NAT_FLUX, whilst the uncertainties are labelled NAT_ERROR. These two sectors (fossil fuel and non-fossil fuel) are solved for separately in the inversion. Flux and uncertainty units are kg(CH4)/m2/s, and time units are days since January 1st 2010. These emissions show improved performance relative to independent observations when included in the TOMCAT model. Further details about the data can be found in Wilson et al. (2020) in the documentation section.

  • Part of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Greenhouse Gases (GHG), the XCH4 EMMA product comprises a level 2, column-averaged dry-air mole fraction (mixing ratio) for methane (CH4). The product has been produced by applying the ensemble median algorithm EMMA to level 2 data of several different retrieval products from the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT) This is therefore a merged GOSAT XCH4 Level 2 product, primarily used as a comparison tool to assess the level of agreement / disagreement of the various input products (for model-independent global comparison, i.e. for comparisons not restricted to TCCON validation sites and independent of global model data).

The product has been produced using data acquired from the Thermal and Near Infrared Sensor for Carbon Observations (TANSO-FTS) NIR and SWIR spectra, onboard the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT). This version of the proxy product (version 6.0) has been generated using the OCPR University of Leicester Full-Physics Retrieval Algorithm, based on the original Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) Full Physics Retrieval Algorithm and modified for use on GOSAT spectra baseline algorithm.

A second product has also been generated from the TANSO-FTS data using an alternative algorithm, the RemoTeC Proxy algorithm. It is advised that users who aren't sure whether to use the baseline or alternative product use this product generated with the OCPR baseline algorithm.

  • Created as part of The European Space Agency's (ESA) GHG CCI project, the XCH4 GOS Full Physics (FP) data product is a level 2, column-averaged mole fraction (mixing ratio) of methane (CH4). The product is part of Climate Research Data Package Number 3 (CRDP#3) and is based upon data generated for the years 2009-2013. It has been produced using data acquired from the Thermal and Near Infrared Sensor for Carbon Observations (TANSO-FTS) NIR and SWIR spectra onboard the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT). By contrast to the Proxy (PR) versions of the product generated with proxy algorithms, the FP products have been produced using full physics algorithms, in this case the RemoTeC SRFP baseline algorithm. The data product is stored per day in a single NetCDF file. Retrieval results are provided for the individual GOSAT spatial footprints, no averaging having been applied. The product file contains the key products with and without bias correction. Information relevant for the use of the data is also included in the data file, such as the vertical layering and averaging kernels. Additionally, the parameters retrieved simultaneously with XCH4 are included (e.g. surface albedo), as well as retrieval diagnostics like retrieval errors and the quality of the fit.
