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
- Air pollution: agriculture and transport emissions continue to pose problems in meeting agreed limits July 9, 2018Emissions from agriculture and transport continue to pose problems for European Union Member States in meeting EU and United Nations air pollution limits, according to updated data published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) today. While emissions of most air pollutants remain on a downward trend, ammonia emissions continued to rise in 2016.Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- Countries give only limited information on the results of their policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions July 5, 2018Most national policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Europe target energy consumption and energy supply, while economic and regulatory instruments are the most common means of cutting emissions, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today. The report also reveals that EU Member States report the actual effects and costs for only […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- European waters getting cleaner, but big challenges remain July 3, 2018Despite progress in improving the quality of Europe’s lakes, rivers, coastal waters and groundwater sources, pollution, structures like dams, and over-abstraction remain top threats to their long-term health. A vast majority of Europe’s water bodies still fail to meet the European Union’s minimum target for ‘good status’, according to a European Environment Agency ‘state of […]Cornelis Brand
- Product reuse and longer lifespans hold untapped potential to cut waste in Europe June 25, 2018Reuse of products can reduce material demand and prevent waste, which are important aspects of EU waste policy and essential for achieving a circular economy. However, current approaches to promote reuse in Member States are diverse and rely mostly on voluntary arrangements, according to a European Environment Agency report, published today. While reuse is an […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
- New data collected by citizens: Cigarette butts and filters the most common pieces of litter on Europe’s beaches June 8, 2018The European Environment Agency (EEA) has released new data about litter found on Europe’s beaches. Based on nearly 700,000 collected items, disposable plastics are the biggest contributor to marine litter, with cigarette butts and filters being the most commonly found individual items. The new data has been collected by volunteers using the EEA’s Marine LitterWatch […]Antti Pekka Kaartinen
