Abstract

Longterm observations (2002-present) of atmospheric chemistry parameters have been made at the Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory (WAO) including ozone, carbon monoxide and dulphur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and cloud condensation nuclei. WAO is an NCAS facility and part of the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA). It is situated on the north Norfolk coast and is a world class facility for fundamental research, background atmospheric monitoring and teaching purposes. WAO operates a range of instruments in its measurement programme - the data from which is archived at the BADC. The WAO has also been the focus of many international experiments designed to into the chemistry of the planetary boundary layer and free troposphere.
