Atmospheric gases data

Measurements of atmospheric gases help us monitor and understand air quality. Measurements are from instruments located at the earth’s surface (ground-based).

Some of these gases data are available as early as 1986.

You can also get data files from all of the measurements of atmospheric gases.
