TACOS - INFRASTRUCTU Résumé de rapport

Project ID: EVR1-CT-2001-40015
Financé au titre de: FP5-EESD
Pays: France

Final report and Web site (coordinated by WMO) on progress of European-HUB activities within GLOBALHUBS Programme

The initial strategy was to establish in Europe what is referred to as a HUB laboratory, that is, a source of well-characterized atmospheric air under low-pressure in containers called MELONs for other laboratories within Europe. Similar HUBS were foreseen to be established in North America, Australia, and Japan. In the course of TACOS, the WMO-GAW did not endorse the international HUB programme, but we pursued the proposed work.

Summarized below are the main steps needed to accomplish associated deliverables D4-7.
The final report has been delivered (this document). The web site has been upgraded and the results published in the WMO-GAW programme Expert CO2 series report (Conference in September 2005).
