This dataset contains measurements of enrichment of 14C in carbon dioxide in air taken from the sampling tower at Mace Head Observatory. The samples were taken at 185m and analysed by Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (AMS) at Keck-Carbon Cycle AMS facility, University of California, Irvine.
This data was collected as part of the NERC GAUGE (Greenhouse gAs UK and Global Emissions) project (NE/K002449/1NERC and TRN1028/06/2015). The GAUGE project aimed to produce robust estimates of the UK Greenhouse Gas budget, using new and existing measurement networks and modelling activities at a range of scales. It aimed to integrate inter-calibrated information from ground-based, airborne, ferry-borne, balloon-borne, and space-borne sensors, including new sensor technology.
