KUC, TADEUSZ (2011)

The isotopic composition of atmospheric CO2 and its concentration in the Krakow region has been measured since 1983. Air samples have been collected in bi-weekly intervals close to the center of Krakow. The six years records (1983–88) of these data reveal multi-annual linear trends and winter-summer oscillations. The calculated parameters of the individual regression lines (intercept and slope) for the measured Δ14C, δ13C and CO2 concentration, C, are: 173‰ (January 1983) and − 10.7‰ yr-1, − 9.58‰ (January 1983) and – 0.038‰ yr-1, 371 ppmv (January 1983) and 1.0 ppmv yr-1, respectively. The 14C activity in tree leaves collected in a mountain region, about 60 km from Krakow was also assessed. The parameters of the linear decrease of 14C activity in tree leaves are: 239‰ (January 1983) and 21‰ yr-1.DOI: 10.1034/j.1600-0889.1991.t01-4-00003.x
