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
- Achieving EU's key 2020 environmental objectives slipping away November 29, 2018According to the European Environment Agency’s (EEA) updated environmental indicator report published today, the European Union continues to fall short of achieving a number of environmental objectives by 2020, especially in areas aimed at protecting biodiversity and natural capital. When it comes to 'boosting sustainable, resource-efficient, low-carbon economy', trends and outlooks cause more concern compared […]Cornelis Brand
- Better information needed on Europe's forests November 27, 2018There is a growing demand for forest products and ecosystem services but information on the changes in Europe's forests is currently limited. According to an EEA briefing, published today, high-resolution satellite images will improve knowledge about changes in structure, function and condition of forest ecosystems and the impacts of different forest management practices across Europe.Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Rising energy consumption slows EU progress on renewables and energy efficiency targets November 25, 2018Progress on increasing the use of renewable energy and improving energy efficiency is slowing across the European Union, putting at risk the EU’s ability to achieve its energy and emissions reduction targets. Rising energy consumption, particularly in the transport sector, is to blame for the slowdown, according to preliminary data released today in the European […]Cornelis Brand
- EEA report confirms: electric cars are better for climate and air quality November 22, 2018Battery electric cars emit less greenhouse gases and air pollutants over their entire life cycle than petrol and diesel cars, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today. Promoting renewable energy and circular economy — including the shared use of vehicles and product design that supports reuse and recycling — will help maximise […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Restoring floodplains would improve state of water, ecosystems and climate protection in Europe November 19, 2018Areas next to rivers hold potential for cost-effective flood protection and improving the health of an entire river ecosystem. According to a European Environment Agency (EEA) briefing published today, restoring European floodplains closer to their natural state would contribute to the achievement of several European Union policies. Estimates suggest that 70-90 % of Europe’s floodplain […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
