Mauna Loa Atmospheric CO2 Concentration
Atmospheric concentrations of CO$2$ are expressed in parts per million (ppm) and reported in the preliminary 1997 SIO manometric mole fraction scale.
The values for February, March and April of 1964 were missing and have been obtained by interpolating linearly between the values for January and May of 1964.
A time series of 468 observations; monthly from 1959 to 1997.
