Abstract

This dataset contains concentrations of methane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and carbon monoxide measured using an Ecotech Spectronus FTIR (Fourier transform infrared) spectrometer. The instrument operated from 7 August 2014 to 15 August 2014 on a landfill site near Great Blakenham, Suffolk. The measurement site was located at 52.112N, 1.082E, and the inlet was located 2m 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.
