Greenhouse Gas Factsheets

As part of the most comprehensive synthesis data product of atmospheric GHG measurements, we here present fact sheets for 43 greenhouse gases. Please see Meinshausen et al., Geoscientific Model Development, 2017 and its supplements for more details.

The lifetimes and radiative efficiencies are taken from IPCC WG1 Fifth Assessment Report, Appendix 8.A. We thank Urs Beyerle at IAC, ETH Zurich, for hosting the different fileformats.

The provided data formats (in the last column) are:

  • nc - netcdf files
  • mat - MATLAB .mat data files
  • csv - comma separate ASCII files
  • xlsx - Excel files
