Continuous Measurements

Long term methane measurements are taken at the Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab), Halley research station in coastal Antarctica run by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). These will feed into modelling activities in the MOYA project.

The British Antarctic Survey also make methane measurements in the remote South Atlantic from their station in the Falkland Islands.

A collaboration of UK Universities (Cambridge, York and University of East Anglia) with the University of Malaya make continuous measurements of methane at the Bachok Marine Research Station on the east coast of Malaysia.

This site is of particular interest as it experiences “Cold Surge” events bringing air from China across the South China Sea, and across areas of rice cultivation and biomass burning on the eastern Indochina Peninsula. This image shows a NAME map of such an event in January 2014.
