  • Longterm Methane(CH4) measurements at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) using Clarus 500 Greenhouse Gas GC (Perkin Elmer) instrument operated by the NCAS (National Centre for Atmospheric Science) AMF (Atmospheric Measurement Facility). WAO, situated on the north Norfolk coast, is part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and is a world class facility for fundemental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC. The atmospheric methane measurements are every 10 minutes.

  • 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.

  • Infrared radiances from the Limb Infrared Monitor of the Stratosphere (LIMS) instrument, mounted on the Nimbus-7 satellite, were stored on a Radiance Archive Tape (RAT). RAT data was used to derive a series of products, two of which are held here. Firstly, the LIMS Inverted Profile Archival Tape (LAIPAT). This dataset contains mixing ratios of methane and nitrogen dioxide.

  • This dataset contains air sample measurements of isotopic d13C methane. The measurements were collected using regular flask samples at Pantanal research station Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS). The samples were analysed by Royal Holloway University of London using continuous flow gas chromatography/isotope ratio mass spectrometry (CF-GC/IRMS). These data were collected as part of the Methane Observations and Yearly Assessments (MOYA) project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) (NE/N016211/1).

  • This dataset contains air sample measurements of the ratio between carbon 12: carbon 13 in atmospheric methane (d13C). The air samples measured were taken at the Ascension Islands on a regular basis using glass flasks. The samples were analysed for the carbon ratio in methane at Royal Holloway University of London using continuous flow gas chromatography/isotope ratio mass spectrometry (CF-GC/IRMS). MS). This data was collected as part of the Methane Observations and Yearly Assessments (MOYA) project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) (NE/N016211/1).

  • This dataset contains isotopic sampling of methane taken on board the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) twin-otter aircraft during a flight campaign over the Llanos de Moxos wetland near Trinidad, Bolivia in 2019 and supporting model simulations for the Methane Observations and Yearly Assessments (MOYA) project. Air samples were collected in tedlar bags during flights over the region and subsequently analysed at the Greenhouse Gas Laboratory, Royal Holloway University (RHUL). These are supported with data from a nested GEOS-Chem model simulation at 0.25° x 0.3125° which was used to map the relationship between emissions and aircraft measurements in a regional domain bounded by 24 - 0 °S and 75 – 55 °W. In addition, a footprint of the air source was simulated for each minute of aircraft sampling to capture using the Met Office NAME model at of 0.14° × 0.09° and temporal resolution of 3 hourly.

  • The Methane and other greenhouse gases in the Artic - Measurements, process studies and Modelling (MAMM) project was a consortium as part of the NERC Artic Research Programme. This project used a range of expertise, from measurements of methane and its isotopes, and other greenhouse gases, through flux measurements to numerical analysis and modelling. Analysis of gas mixing ratios (concentrations), isotopic character, and source fluxes, both from the ground and aircraft. Both past and new measurements were modelled using a suite of techniques. Fluxes were implemented into the JULES land surface model. Atmospheric modelling, including trajectory and inverse modelling will improve understanding on the local/regional scale, placing the role of Arctic emissions in large scale global atmospheric change. The project was led by the University of Cambridge, and in association with the University of Manchester, University of East Anglia, Royal Holloway, University of London, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and UK and International partners (Met Office, NILU, NOAA, etc).
