Continuous measurements of greenhouse gases and particles to monitor changes in the atmosphere. The programme is operated by Norwegian Institute of Air Research (NILU) on behalf of Norwegian Environment Agency. The Zeppelin Observatory is a major contributor of data on a global as well as a regional scale.The programme is decribed in the link.

The measurement programme includes 25 long lived greenhouse gases (CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs, halons, hydrogenated hydrocarbons SF6, CO, N2O, CH4, CO2 aerosol optical depth (AOD). These observations are partly included in the national monitoring programme, and partly activities financed and performed on the initiative of NILU. Also measurements of aerosol number and size distribution, light attenuation ("black carbon") , light scattering are performed at the observatory. These measurements are under the responsibility of ITM, University of Stockholm.
The halocarbon measurements are in accordance with AGAGE QA/QC procedures, the reactive trace gases and aerosol measurements are in accordance with ACTRIS QA/QC. The Zeppelin Observatory are in progress of being ICOS labelled for the CO2, CH4, CO.
