The figure shows daily averaged CO2 from four GMD Baseline observatories; Barrow, Alaska (in blue), Mauna Loa, Hawaii (in red), American Samoa (in green), and South Pole, Antarctica (in yellow). The thick black line represents the average of the smoothed, de-seasonalized curves for each of the records. This trend line is a very good estimate of the global average levels of CO2. Details about how the trend is calculated from the daily data is available here.
