Tacolneston tower

The Tacolneston tower (TAC) began measuring a wide range of trace gases in August 2012. The University of East Anglia (Prof. Bill Sturges and Dr David Oram) perform maintenance and data collection at the site and are partially funded through NCAS.

Tacolneston is located on the east coast of England, 10 miles west of Norwich at 52.5177o N 1.1386o E and 56 m above sea level. Measurements are made from three tower levels with inlets at 54 m, 100 m and 185 m. There are no major sources of local pollution and the surrounding rural area is covered in arable land.
