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
- Europe's sustainability agenda needs knowledge for action and more concrete targets to achieve its ambitions October 14, 2021The European Green Deal has set unprecedented sustainability ambitions for the European Union (EU) and calls for transformational change across society. To realise such far-reaching changes, Europe needs knowledge for action. This means better uptake and use of existing knowledge, new types of knowledge, new ways of creating knowledge, and, in some policy areas, better […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Europe’s nature under pressure — challenges and solutions September 30, 2021The European Environment Agency’s (EEA) work and other assessments have shown that European ecosystems are under serious threat. Centuries of exploitation have left their mark on Europe’s natural world and most protected habitats and species are not in good conservation status. The EEA Signals 2021, published today, presents an overview of the problems Europe’s nature […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Industrial air pollution in Europe costs society €277 - €433 billion September 29, 2021Emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases from large industrial sites in Europe cost society between €277 and €433 billion, in 2017, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) analysis, published today. About half of the annual cost is caused by just 211 facilities, around 2 % of the largest industrial sites in Europe. The […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Pollution and barriers are key problems for Europe’s waters September 23, 2021European water bodies suffer from agricultural pollution as well as pollution from insufficiently treated waste water from cities, industry and scattered dwellings, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today. Artificial barriers, together with navigation, abstraction, aquaculture, and invasive alien species cause additional pressures. However, solutions to tackle the problems exist and should […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Air pollution still too high in most EU Member States September 21, 2021Concentrations of key air pollutants remain too high in most European countries. According to the European Environment Agency’s official data, published today, most European Union (EU) Member States exceed at least one or more of the EU’s legal limits for pollutants in ambient air in 2019.Antti Pekka Kaartinen
