Abstract [en]

This article concerns atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO(2)) measurements made in Scandinavia and in the Arctic region before measurements started at Mauna Loa, Hawaii, in 1958. The CO(2) hypothesis of climate change was one reason to measure atmospheric CO(2) in the mid-1950s. The earlier history of CO(2) measurements-for instance, the work of the chemist Kurt Buch-was also influential in this period. It is unclear when the CO(2) hypothesis of climate change began to provide sufficient motivation for measurements, and the measurements may relate in a nonlinear way to the growth in popularity of the hypothesis. Discussions between meteorologist Carl-Gustaf Rossby at Stockholm Hogskola and scientists in America reveal how different kinds of CO(2) studies varied with regard to precision.
