Researchers around the globe utilize the data collected by AGAGE.

Beginning in 1978, three successive automated high-frequency in situ experiments – the Atmospheric Lifetime Experiment (ALE), the Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (GAGE), and the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) – have documented the long-term behavior of the measured concentrations of these gases over the past 20 years, and show both the evolution of latitudinal gradients and the high-frequency variability due to sources and circulation. Research summarizes interpretations of these measurements using inverse methods to determine trace gas lifetimes and emissions.
