This dataset contains concentrations of methane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and carbon monoxide measured using an Ecotech Spectronus FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectrometer) in Glatton, Cambridgeshire. The instrument operated from October 2014 to April 2016 in the tower of St Nicholas Church, Glatton. The church is located at 52.461N, 0.304W, and the inlet was located 20m above the ground.

This data was collected as part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Greenhouse gAs Uk and Global Emissions (GAUGE) project.

The GAUGE project aimed to determine the magnitude, spatial distribution, and uncertainties of the UK's Greenhouse Gas budget using new and existing measurement networks and modelling approaches at a range of scales.
