Title: Atmospheric CO2 Record from In Situ Measurements at K-Puszta, Hungary (1981 - 1997)

Abstract

The K-puszta regional background air pollution monitoring station was established in a clearing in a mixed forest on the Hungarian Great Plain in the middle of the Carpathian Basin. K-puszta is as free from direct pollution as possible in the highly industrialized, densely populated central Europe. Because of the growing vegetation, the station was moved in September 1993 to a larger clearing, also at the same elevation, approximately 500 m from the original site. The region is climatologically calm. The yearly mean atmospheric CO2 concentration at K-puszta, Hungary increased from 354.1 parts per million (ppm) in 1981 to 377.0 ppm in 1997. Because the K-puszta station is located in a clearing of a forested area on the Hungarian Great Plain, it is subject to significant biospheric effects. As a result, the record from K-puszta shows high seasonal and interannual variability. However, the trends and temporal features of the K-puszta record parallel those observed at other Northern Hemisphere baseline air pollution monitoring stations (Haszpra 1995).
