NOAA ESRL GML is the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) Central Calibration Laboratory (CCL) for CO2, CH4, N2O, SF6, and CO. In support of GAW, GML offers calibration services for these gases for a fee. ESRL/GML also can also calibrate compressed gas standards to NOAA/GML internal scales for other gases, such as CFCs, HCFCs, and the stable isotopes of CO2.
A WMO Central Calibration Laboratory is responsible for maintaining and distributing the WMO Mole Fraction scale for a specified gas in air.
GML sells and calibrates reference gas cylinders for a number of species.
Scales are defined based on a specific set of primary standards. Scales are named according to the year in which they are adopted.
