Carbon cycle - Atmosphere

Atmospheric research is performed by the Centre for Isotope Research (CIO) at several locations.
The main objective is to gain knowledge about the sources and sinks of the main long-lived anthropogenic greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and N2O.

Sources and sinks of greenhouse gases are determined from their concentrations and concentrations of Rn, O2, 14C and 13C. Besides being involved in several international research projects, CIO has its own remote and automated stations Lutjewad and F3 were the main greenhouse gases and tracers are measured.

Information of our measurement platforms is available with the menu left.
