Abstract: A comprehensive set of essential atmospheric variables have been measured since 1986 at the JRC-Ispra site to assess the impact of European policies and international conventions on air pollution and climate forcing. In 2017, all instruments have been moved at the new Atmospheric Observatory. The variables we measure include greenhouse gas concentrations (CO2, CH4, N2O, SF6), radon (222Rn) activity concentration, short-lived gaseous and particulate pollutant (CO, SO2, NO, NO2, O3, PM2.5 and its main ionic and carbonaceous constituents) concentrations, atmospheric particle micro-physical characteristics (number concentration and size distribution) and optical properties (light scattering and absorption in-situ, light scattering and extinction vertical profiles remotely), eutrophying and acidifying species (SO42-, NO3-, NH4+) wet deposition. Atmosphere-biosphere exchange fluxes are measured at the Mediterranean site of San Rossore.
