description This is the Environment Canada's CARE Facility in Egbert. The Centre for Atmospheric Experiments (CARE) was designed as an integrated multi-disciplinary facility to promote atmospheric research. CARE collects data and provides support for the Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN), the Canadian Mercury Network (CMN), and the National Atmospheric Chemistry (NAtChem) database. It is also classified as a 'CORE' station for meteorological, particulate matter and trace gas measurements. Egbert is a small rural village near Aliston Ontario about 80 km north of Toronto. CARE is also a GAW regional station and an EMAN site.
Currently Environment Canada's, Greenhouse Gas Measurement Lab continuously measures CO2 with Non Nondispersive infrared sensor (NDIR), CO, CH4, N2O, SF6 with gas chromatographic instrument, 13CO2, CO2 via Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy, along with bi-weekly flask samples which measure CO2, CO, CH4, N2O, SF6, H2. There is also a continuous radon monitor at the site along with integrated bi-weekly 14CO2 sampling all taken from an inlet located on a 25m tower except Radon which is taken from the roof at 2m.
