Summary
Abstract: This data set is a continually updated online table of important
information about greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide (CO2),
methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), CFCs, and other greenhouse
gases. Data includes pre-industrial (1860) concentrations, present
tropospheric concentrations, global warming potential (GWP), and
atmospheric lifetime. All of the data are referenced by their source
including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and
many greenhouse gas concentration data sets found at CDIAC.
