Abstract: A comprehensive set of essential atmospheric variables have been measured in 2018 at the European Commission Atmospheric Observatory on the site of the historical EMEP-GAW station of the JRC in Ispra to continue the assessment of the impact of European policies and international conventions on air pollution and climate forcing that started in 1985. The variables we measure at the Atmospheric Observatory in Ispra include greenhouse gas concentrations (CO2, CH4), radon (222Rn) activity concentration, short-lived gaseous and particulate pollutant concentrations (CO, SO2, NO, NO2, O3, NMHCs, PM2.5 and its main ionic and carbonaceous constituents), 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 (sulphate, nitrate, ammonium) wet deposition. Vegetation - atmosphere exchanges (CO2, O3, H2O and heat) are measured at our Mediterranean Forest Flux Station of San Rossore, backed up by meteorological and pedological measurements.
