UK DECC (Deriving Emissions linked to Climate Change) Network

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published


The UK DECC (Deriving Emissions linked to Climate Change) Network consists of four sites in the UK and Ireland measuring greenhouse and ozone depleting gases from tall telecommunication towers. High-frequency measurements of all major greenhouse gases are made at the four stations (Ridge Hill, Herefordshire; Tacolneston, Norfolk; Bilsdale, North Yorkshire and Mace Head, Ireland), including carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride and a suite of halocarbons. Data from the UK DECC network are used to assess atmospheric trends and UK emissions of these gases, as well as feeding into other research programmes, such as NitroEurope and global networks, such as the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE).
