DATA AND SERVICES
The Data Acquisition System acquires in near real-time the row observation data coming from Mt. Curcio station and shows them as data series in the dedicated web page, the Data Dashboard, reachable here.
This page was designed to give a comprehensive view of all measurements observed at Mt. Curcio station. For each recorded parameter the last row data trend is shown here.
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
