Atmospheric Histories (1765-2015) for CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113, CCl4, SF6 and N2O (NCEI Accession 0164584)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The initiation of global atmospheric monitoring programs for CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113 and CCl4 began in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Atmospheric concentrations of these compounds prior to this period are derived from estimates of annual industrial production and release of these compounds, with corrections applied based on the atmospheric lifetimes of each compound. Details on the procedures for deriving annual mean CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113 and CCl4 concentration values (and estimates of errors) for the period 1910-1998 are provided in Walker et al. (2000).

Concentration values for CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113 and CCl4 listed in Table 1 from 1910.5 to 2008.5 are based on a 2009 update (bluemoon.ucsd.edu/pub/cfchist) of the Walker et al. (2000) results. Information on the calibration scales used at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) is also provided at this website. The most recent (2009.5 to 2015.5) concentration values reported in Table 1 are derived from CMDL atmospheric measurements tabulated at the website: ftp://ftp.cmdl.noaa.gov/hats/ in 2015.
