Caption: Climate and atmospheric monitoring. View of the Climate Monitoring and Diagnostic Laboratory (CMDL), sited at an altitutde of 4170 metres on Mauna Loa, Hawaii. The main laboratory building is at centre. Just to the left of this is a white dome which houses an instrument for measuring atmospheric ozone. At far left is a tower which has air sampling equipment at the top. The peak of Mauna Kea is seen in the background, home to many astronomy observatories. The dark colouration in the foreground is due to the lava flows which constitute the 'soil' here. CMDL is operated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
