Atmospheric science includes the physics and chemistry of gases within the Earth’s atmosphere. The concentrations of greenhouse gases that absorb and emit radiation within the thermal infrared range are a major focus of atmospheric science. Global sites monitoring greenhouse gases in the atmosphere measure the distribution and trends of the three main long-term drivers of climate change—carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). Type of monitoring sites include baseline observatories, tall towers, aircraft, and balloon sampling systems.
