Hawaii’s Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) is one of the world’s leading scientific stations for monitoring the atmosphere. For more than fifty years, beginning with atmospheric chemist Charles Keeling’s readings of Hawaii dioxide levels in the atmosphere, MLO has provided climate scientists a continuous record of the atmosphere’s increasing concentration of carbon dioxide―and sparked the 5/5(4).

Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) is located on the north flank of Mauna Loa Volcano, on the Big Island of Hawaii, at an elevation of meters, or 11, feet above sea level. The observatory is a premier atmospheric research facility that has been continuously monitoring and collecting data related to atmospheric change since the 's.

These graphs show carbon dioxide measurements at the Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii. The graphs display recent measurements as well as historical long term measurements.

The related website summarizes in graphs the recent monthly CO2, the full CO2 Record, the annual Mean CO2 Growth Rate, and gives links to detailed CO2 data for this location, which is one of the most important.

Figure shows the trend in atmospheric CO 2 sincethe so-called Keeling curve, based on the work started by Charles Keeling. Monthly measurements of atmospheric CO 2 concentration at the Mauna Loa observatory (Hawaii) by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) show an accelerating trend in CO 2 concentration.

The first 12 years (–) of continuous atmospheric CO 2 measurements from the NOAA GMCC program at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii are analyzed. Hourly and daily variations in the concentration of CO 2 due to local sources and sinks are described, with subsequent selection of data representing background concentrations.

The measurements are made at remote places like these because they are not greatly influenced by local processes, so therefore they are representative of the background atmosphere.

Mauna Loa Observatory has been home to hundreds of atmospheric research programs involving numerous cooperative organizations and related to a diverse spectrum of research categories. Each of our past and present programs has a web page with general project information, photographs, instrument.

Organization. The Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) is an atmospheric baseline station of the Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL), Global Monitoring Division (GMD), of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).The mission of ESRL is to measure atmospheric constituents that are capable of forcing change in the climate of the earth and those that may deplete the ozone layer.

Sinceinitially under the direction of Charles Keeling, followed by his son Ralph and later Elmer Robinson, Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) has been monitoring and collecting data relating to atmospheric change, and is known especially for the continuous monitoring of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2), which is sometimes referred to as the Keeling Curve.

The observations since that established the systematic increase of atmospheric CO2 (Keeling et al., ) were carried out at the NOAA Observatory on Mauna Loa (alti-tude ma.s.l. (above sea level)), Big Island, Hawaii. It has been argued (Ryan, ) that this is an excellent loca-tion to make atmospheric measurements because of the iso.
