Abstract

Measurements of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon monoxide and a suite of halocarbons and other trace gas species made at Heathfield Tall Tower, East Sussex were made for the UK-DECC (Deriving Emissions related to Climate Change) Network.

Heathfield (HFD) is a semi-rural UK site located 19 km south of Royal Tunbridge Wells (population ~118,000), in East Sussex, UK. This station is affiliated to the UK DECC (Deriving Emissions related to Climate Change) Network, and is operated by the National Physics Laboratory (NPL). CO2, CH4 and CO are measured at a height of 50 m and 100 m above ground level. Due to the sites location, far from strong sources of local pollution, measurements from this site will be used to calculate emission maps of trace gas species in the UK in combination with other measurement stations in the UK and Ireland.

Due to the sites location, far from strong sources of local pollution, measurements from this site are used to calculate emission maps of trace gas species in the UK in combination with other measurement stations in the UK (Bilsdale, Ridge Hill and Tacolneston) and Ireland (Mace Head).

This work was funded by Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
