The sampling site at Tae-ahn Peninsula, Republic of Korea, is operated in cooperation with the Korea-China Centre for Atmospheric Research. The first NOAA/CMDL flask air samples from Tae-ahn were collected in late 1990. The annual atmospheric CO2 mixing ratio at Tae-ahn Peninsula rose from 359.91 parts per million (ppm) in 1991 to 377.82 ppm in 2002; the growth rate is comparable to those seen at other monitoring sites around the world for the same period.
