  • China initiated a national carbon trading market in December 2017. Commitments and actions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions require consistent, reliable and timely information on GHG emissions. GHG monitoring and modeling studies provide GHG emission estimates to evaluate and guide progress towards emission reductions. GHG monitoring has mainly focused on global-scale background networks over the last few decades, while recent efforts have been made on regional and urban scales, such as projects in the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei city cluster, in Paris, Washington–Baltimore, Indianapolis, and Los Angeles. These “top-down” atmospheric observations, together with “bottom-up” GHG emissions inventories and biosphere fluxes, are integrated into GHG monitoring and application information systems. The Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information System (or IG3IS) was established by WMO/UNEP to facilitate such efforts after the 17th World Meteorological Congress. As one of the countries heavily impacted by climate change, China has implemented many actions to respond to climate change. Atmospheric GHG measurement techniques have been developed rapidly in China over the last decade, and this work has been applied in evaluating GHG emissions, identifying GHG sources, quantifying GHG fluxes, and supporting GHG-related policymaking.

    The First China Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Conference was held in Beijing on 30th and 31st May 2019, which attracted more than 200 people from over 80 participating universities and institutes. This AAS–AOSL–ACCR joint special issue on “Atmospheric Greenhouse Gas Measurement and Application in China” provides a selection of research highlights from this conference. The selected papers cover all the sections of the conference, as follows:

    (1) CO2 background monitoring. An example here is the paper by Mai et al. (2020), which measured background atmospheric CO2 and the potential source regions in the Pearl River Delta region.

    (2) CO2 city area (emission sources) monitoring. The paper by Xiong et al. (2020) reports on a two-year observation of fossil-fuel CO2 spatial distribution in Xi’an City using 14C isotope data. Also, Bao et al. (2020) present a novel study in which a low-cost non-dispersive infrared sensor was used to observe the vertical CO2 distribution in a high emissions area of Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province. Meanwhile, Zhang et al. (2020) conducted a three-year analysis of the variations and transmission characteristics of CO2 in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province.

    (3) Non-CO2 GHG monitoring. Pu et al. (2020) estimated the hydrofluorocarbon emissions during 2012–16 in the Yangtze River Delta region based on weekly sampling at Lin’an Background Station, Zhejiang Province.

    (4) GHG flux measurement. An example here is the work presented by Zhu et al. (2020), which compared the ozone fluxes over a maize field measured with gradient methods and the eddy covariance technique.

    (5) New technologies and applications for GHG measurement. For instance, Ji et al. (2020) show the temporal and vertical distribution of methane in Xianghe derived from ground-based Fourier transform infrared and Picarro measurements. Using the Aircore method, Yi et al. (2020) conducted direct observations of atmospheric transport and stratosphere–troposphere exchange from CO2 profile measurements in Inner Mongolia.

    (6) Applications of observational data. Fu et al. (2020) used a global chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem) and observations at 14 surface stations from the World Data Centre for Greenhouse Gases to study the sensitivity of the simulated CO2 concentration to interannual variations of its sources and sinks over East Asia.

    These efforts provide accurate scientific understanding, technical support and solutions for major issues such as energy conservation and emissions reduction, carbon market transactions and low-carbon development. Along with this special issue, the China Carbon Monitoring Alliance ( is under way, and a data resources platform has also been established to provide opportunities for collaborations.
