Abstract. We present the organization, structure, instrumentation, and measurements of the Northeast Corridor greenhouse gas observation network. This network of tower-based in-situ carbon dioxide and methane observations was established in 2015 with the goal of quantifying emissions of these gases in urban areas in the north-eastern United States. A specific focus of the network is the cities of Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., USA, with a high density of observation stations in these two urban areas. Additional observation stations are scattered throughout the US northeast, established to complement other existing urban and regional networks and to investigate emissions throughout this complex region with a high population density and multiple metropolitan areas. Data described in this paper are archived at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and can be found at https://doi.org/10.18434/M32126 (Karion et al., 2019).

Short summary
Our paper presents atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane in the northeastern United States. We also describe the collection, quality-control, and uncertainty estimation methods associated with the observations. The network is composed of 23 tower-based stations, including a dense sub-network in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland urban areas. Observations can be used to assess greenhouse gas emissions from these cities and regions.
