The Mauna Loa atmospheric CO2 measurements constitute the longest continuous record of atmospheric CO2 concentrations available in the world. The Mauna Loa site is considered one of the most favorable locations for measuring undisturbed air because possible local influences are minimal. Methods and equipment used to obtain these measurements have remained essentially unchanged during the 47-year monitoring ... Full description.
