- Scope And Content
The stations ALT, PTB, LJO, MLO, KUM, CHR, SAM, KER, NZD, SPO are active and generate ongoing data sets, which will be updated when new data is available. The stations STP, BCS, and PSA are no longer active, but will be included here as legacy station data.
A new landing page and Digital Object Identifier is issued whenever a new calibration is applied to the data. To access data sets from the most recent calibration, please go to the collection page, Scripps CO2 Program Data, and click on View Collection Items.
- Date Collected
- 1957 - present
- Date Issued
The data sets were calibrated using an "08A" scale.
