ABSTRACT: The concentration of atmospheric CO2 in Beijing increased rapidly at a mean growth rate of 3.7% · a−1 from 1993 to 1995. After displaying a peak of (409.7±25.9) μmol · mol−1 in 1995, it decreased slowly. Both the almost stable anthropogenic CO2 source and increasing biotic CO2 sink contribute to the drop of CO2 concentration from 1995 to 2000. The seasonal variation of CO2 concentration exhibits a clear cycle with a maximum in winter, averaging (426.8±20.6) μmol · mol−1, and a minimum in summer, averaging (369.1±6.1) μmol·mol−1. The seasonal variation of CO2 concentration is mainly controlled by phenology. The mean diurnal variation of atmospheric CO2 concentration for a year in Beijing is highly clear: daily maximum CO2 concentration usually occurs at night, but daily minimum CO2 concentration does in the daytime, with a mean diurnal difference more than 34.7 μmol·mol−1. It has been revealed that the interannual variations of atmospheric CO2 concentration in winter and autumn regulated the interannual trend of atmospheric CO2, whereas the interannual variation of CO2 concentration in summer affected the general tendency of atmospheric CO2 in a less degree.Chinese Science Bulletin 04/2012; 47(24):2050-2055. · 1.32 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The diurnal variation of the atmospheric CO2 at the urban area in Beijing displayed a very clear cycle, generally with the lowest value being recorded at about 15:00 local time and the highest in the nighttime. The differences between the maximums and the minimums ranged from 23.2 to 39.0 mumol.mol-1 in the four seasons and the ones of summer and fall were bigger than that of winter and spring. It showed a large seasonal cycle with a maximum in winter, from 421.5 to 441.0 mumol.mol-1, and a minimum in summer, between 367.4 and 371.6 mumol.mol-1. The peak-to-peak amplitude of atmospheric CO2 in Beijing, controlled mostly by the anthropogenic activities and seasonal variation of vegetation, was higher than that in Xinglong Station, Hebei Province and China Global Atmosphere Watch Baseline Observatory (Waliguan). The concentration of atmospheric CO2 in Beijing increased rapidly at a mean growth rate of 3.7%.a-1 from 1993 to 1995. After displaying a peak of 409.7 +/- 25.9 mumol.mol-1 in 1995, it decreased slowly.Huan jing ke xue= Huanjing kexue / [bian ji, Zhongguo ke xue yuan huan jing ke xue wei yuan hui "Huan jing ke xue" bian ji wei yuan hui.] 08/2003; 24(4):13-7.
