General introduction

The EBAS atmospheric database, originally designed for the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP), archives today data on atmospheric composition from ground stations around the globe as well as aircraft platforms. Co-operating frameworks and projects include:

Data providers benefit from improved data dissemination through EBAS with an increased number of collaborations. Data submitted to EBAS are protected by a fair-use data policy while some projects/programmes requests a more restrictive data policy. The association of data to projects thus defines the associated data policy.

This service has been funded or supported by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU), the EU research infrastructure ACTRIS (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure), the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP).
