Abstract

In the paper the gas chromatograph for the tropospheric measurements of the trace gases active in the greenhouse effect and the ozone layer destruction are described. For the measurements of the CO, CH4 and C02 an automatic gas chromatograph was constructed. For the CFCs monitoring the gas chromatographic system realizing the enrichment procedure of the air sample is presented. The construction and the operation of the photocmission electron capture type detector is described. This detector was developed for the stratospheric measurements of the CFCs "in situ".

Keywords: greenhouse effect, measurements of trace gases in the stratosphere
