The CHIOTTO project objective is to build an improved infrastructure for the continuous monitoring of the concentrations of greenhouse gases on the European continent above the surface layer using tall towers. The project is based on and extends previous research projects (AEROCARB, T-COS and TACOS). The project is an important step towards a fully operational continuous observing system in the framework of the Kyoto Protocol for the sources and sinks of the most important greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O, CO, SF6) over Europe.
