Zeppelin station (78°54' N, 11°53' E, 474 m above sea level)

The Zeppelin activities contribute to regional, national and global monitoring networks such as System for observation of halogenated greenhouse gases in Europe (SOGE), Network for detection of Stratospheric Change (NDSC), Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW), EMEP and AMAP.

During ICEALOT, the R/V Knorr conducted an intercomparison period and moored in Kongsfjorden for the period of 16-17 April 2008. Datasets during that period are posted here. For an overview of the measurements, please follow these links:

NILU's measurement programme covers a wide range of parameters in the fields of pollution, climate and radiation. Currently the following instruments are operated:

POP air sampling
Mercury monitor
Ozone monitor
CO monitor
Filter sampling of inorganic pollutants

A majority of the instruments carrying out air pollution measurements are operated by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) and are part of the national pollution monitoring programme financed by Norwegian Pollution Control Authority (SFT).
