ID-66 :   Flask sampling for greenhouse gases over Siberia by commercial airliner



Research/Observation Title

Flask sampling for greenhouse gases over Siberia by commercial airliner

Science Summary (common)

[purpose] To Observe for distributions of greenhouse gases in the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere in the Northern high latitudes. [outline] Monthly air sampling between Paris and Tokyo by automatic air sampling equipment onboard the commercial aircraft and subsequent analysis for concentrations of CO2, CH4, N2O, SF6, H2 and isotope ratios of CO2 and CH4.
