Organisation profile

The Greenhouse Gas Group at Royal Holloway was first formed in an initial form in 1995. Egham’s (London) greenhouse gas time series is the longest UK mainland record and one of the world’s longest urban records.

The laboratory is equipped to carry out high precision, high sample number δ13C(CH4) and δ13C(CO2) measurements, and operates remote COand methane monitoring stations at Barra, Ascension Is, Falklands, Jersey and an instrument on the BAS ship, the James Clark Ross. The group has a long-running interest in Arctic methane studies, with many publications since 1989, and in the use of CH4 isotopes to verify UK and EU emissions declarations and inventory assessments. The laboratory now has a continuous data record for methane from October 2005 and a CO record since 1997.
