The high altitude research station Jungfraujoch is situated on a mountain saddle in the central Swiss Alps between the Jungfrau (4158 m above sea level) in the West and the Moench (4099 m above sea level) in the East.

The station is well suited for long-term ground-based monitoring of trace gas concentrations trends in the free troposphere. Due to its location in central Europe and its proximity to anthropogenic greenhouse gas source regions it is also an appropriate study site for European regional source allocations during pollution events.
