UK Deriving Emissions linked to Climate Change Network (UK DECC Network)

Atmospheric Monitoring & Verification of the UK’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory

The UK DECC (Deriving Emissions linked to Climate Change) Network consists of four sites in the UK and Ireland measuring greenhouse and ozone depleting gases from tall telecommunication towers.  

Videos of our measurement sites at Ridge Hill, Herefordshire; Tacolneston, Norfolk; Heathfield, East Sussex; Bilsdale, Yorkshire; and Mace Head, Ireland can be viewed through the site name links. 

High-frequency measurements of all major greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride and a suite of halocarbons) are made at these sites.

Further information on this unique atmospheric observations network can be found in the project annual reports.

This work is funded by the Government's Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ).

Further information on how this data is used to support verification of the UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory is available in the UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report.
