Maldives KCO Chemistry Gas Chromatograph [Lobert]


This data set contains daily, mean surface surface mixing ratios for the gases nitrous oxide (N2O), sulfur hexaflouride (SF6), chlorofluorocarbon-11 (CFC-11), chlorofluorocarbon-12 (CFC12), and carbon tetrachloride (CC14) collected at the Kaashidhoo Climate Observatory (KCO) during the INDOEX IFP February to March 1999. Data coverage is (inclusive) 12 February 1999 to 29 March 1999. KCO is located at 4.9664 degrees N and 73.4657 degrees E, the air inlet for all gases was mounted about 14 m above sea level (mean elevation of the site is about 0.5-1.0 m) on the top of the observation tower.
