DATA AND SERVICES
GMOS and QA/QC
The GMOS Data Quality Management (G-DQM) system was developed to quality check atmospheric mercury observations recorded by Tekran instrument. Row dataset of mercury are validated in near real-time and in compliance with the Standard Operational Procedures, specifically defined within the EU GMOS project.
The Mt. Curio station is part of the GAW regional network and therefore it focuses on surface observations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), water vapor (H2O) and ozone (O3). The Climatic-Environmental Observatory also measures several other trace gases and aerosol parameters whose records are available with high temporal monitoring frequency.
The Mt Curcio Observatory is part of I-AMICA infrastructure.
Data are periodically send to the Global Atmosphere Watch Programme (GAW) of WMO. In order to download data please visit World Data Centre for Greenhouse Gases
- Why does Europe need to limit climate change and adapt to its impacts? February 9, 2020Europe’s many regions are expected to face worsening impacts of climate change over the next decades. A compilation of several existing maps published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) today illustrates how drought, heavy rain and flooding, forest fires and sea-level rise could affect some selected regions in Europe, including Central Europe, the Iberian peninsula, […]Cornelis Brand
- EU launches new Forest Information System to improve knowledge on forests and woodlands February 5, 2020Amid a need for more accurate, up-to-date and harmonised data and monitoring on Europe’s valuable woodlands, the European Environment Agency and the European Commission today launched a new Forest Information System for Europe (FISE) which aims to become Europe’s knowledge hub to monitor the state, health and sustainability of Europe’s many forests.Cornelis Brand
- European Union continues to phase-down its use of climate-warming fluorinated gases February 4, 2020The European Union remains on track in meeting the goal to phase-down the use of fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases), according to updated data published by the European Environment Agency today.Cornelis Brand
- Walking, cycling and public transport in cities remain greener mobility options than electric scooters or car ride-hailing February 3, 2020The growing use of electric scooters and ride-hailing services is transforming how we move in urban centres — but walking, cycling and public transport remain the best way to improve sustainable mobility in cities, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report published today. A separate EEA briefing on the environmental and climate impacts of […]Cornelis Brand
- Improving circular economy practices in the construction sector key to increasing material reuse, high quality recycling January 16, 2020Construction and demolition waste makes up just over one third of total waste generation in the EU. Despite relatively high recovery rates of used materials, Europe’s construction sector will need to be even more ambitious in its waste management practices if it is to fully embrace Europe’s circular economy. According to a European Environment Agency […]Cornelis Brand
