This document is a source of frequently used global-change data.
This second issue of the Trends series expands the coverage of sites
recording atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) and
methane (CH4), and it updates records reported in the first issue.
New data for other trace atmospheric gases have been included in
this issue: historical data on chlorofluorocarbons (CFC-11 and CFC-
12) and N2O, and estimates of global emissions of CFC-11 and CFC-12.
The estimates for global and national CO2 emissions from the
burning of fossil fuels, the production of cement, and gas flaring have
been revised and updated. Regional CO2 emission estimates have
been added and long-term temperature records have been updated
and expanded.

Data records are presented in four- to six-page formats, each dealing
with a specific site, region, or emissions species. The data records
include tables and graphs; discussion of methods for collecting,
measuring, and reporting the data; trends in the data; and
references to literature that provides further information.
