Supplemental Information
Submission Package ID: D4FWKW

All observations of CO2 and CH4 are directly traceable to the WMO scale
Purpose CO2 and CH4 observations were collected for an array of research goals and interests including: (a) understand spatial and temporal variability of emissions, (b) evaluate the accumulation of pollutants during complex meteorological conditions, (c) develop and improve atmospheric transport models, (d) validate emissions inventory estimates, (e) investigate relationships between urban emissions and air pollution,, (f) and inform stakeholders and policymakers.
