Data Acquisition

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.

DATA DASHBOARD

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.

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.

ABOUT

Monte Curcio
Observations

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

  • Cutting air pollution in Europe would prevent early deaths, improve productivity and curb climate change October 16, 2019
    Europe’s air is getting cleaner but persistent pollution, especially in cities, still damages people’s health and the economy. The European Environment Agency’s (EEA) new analysis on air quality shows that exposure to air pollution caused about 400,000 premature deaths in the European Union (EU) in 2016.

  • New challenges facing Europe’s waste water treatment plants present opportunities for improving sustainability October 9, 2019
    More investment is needed to make urban waste water treatment plants fit to meet the difficult challenges posed by the impacts of climate change, as well as the presence of antibiotics and other micro-pollutants in waste water, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) briefing published today.

  • Europe's circular economy still in its infancy October 1, 2019
    Circular material use can minimise waste and resource extraction, improve resource efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute to conserving biodiversity. However, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today, circular economy initiatives in Europe are still at an early stage and would benefit from more investments in upscaling promising innovations and in […]

  • Protecting Europe's land and soil resources is fundamental for a sustainable future September 30, 2019
    Land and soil underpin life on our planet. The way we currently use these vital and finite resources in Europe is not sustainable. Human activities — growing cities and infrastructure networks, intensive agriculture, pollutants and greenhouse gases released to the environment — transform Europe’s landscapes and exert increasing pressure on land and soil. The European […]

  • Gap between real-world and type-approval emissions undermines incentives for cleaner cars September 24, 2019
    Incentives to promote fuel-efficient cars have not always resulted in expected emission reductions, due to the growing gap between real-world and type approval emissions. However, according to a new European Environment Agency (EEA) briefing, incentives that boost the uptake of electric vehicles considerably reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions.
