Operational System for quality control of calibrations and sample measurements within Europe

The use of MELONs was not successful, but instead the quality control based on SAUSAGE flasks is quite successful. The SAUSAGE intercomparison exercise showed that for all components - except N2O - long-term stability of the differences between labs established earlier (see TACOS Intercomparison Report 2003) was good, i.e. no significant drifts could be observed. This implies that a single time-independent correction of data was achieved within our joint measurement projects In this way an internally consistent (flask) data set could be generated for inverse modelling exercises of the Eurasian carbon budget.
