Greenhouse Gas Concentrations for Six US Cities

Carbon dioxide concentrations.

Carbon dioxide concentrations at the MUR site in Salt Lake City, Utah, show a pronounced seasonal pattern of higher CO2 in the winter months.

NACP: Urban Greenhouse Gases across the CO2 Urban Synthesis and Analysis Network

A new dataset from the North American Carbon Program (NACP) provides hourly urban greenhouse gas measurements for cities in the CO2 Urban Synthesis and Analysis (CO2-USA) Data Synthesis Network. Measurements. The measurements include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations measured at hourly intervals at multiple sites within the cities of Boston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Portland, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco.

The NACP is a multidisciplinary research program designed to improve understanding of North America's carbon sources, sinks, and stocks. The central objective is to measure and understand the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide, methane, and carbon monoxide in North America and adjacent oceans. See all ORNL DAAC data from NACP.
