Abstract:

The results of measurements of carbon dioxide in air at Point Barrow, Alaska, and the principle of operation of the infrared gas analyzer are described. Reference gas comparison data are given in tables, and the method of calculations discussed. The average daily concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide are tabulated for the period 10 July 1961 to 20 February 1963. The diurnal variations of carbon dioxide during this period are also presented. Results of the analyses of carbon dioxide in air collected in flasks from several other Alaskan locations are given.
