I'm using the daily CO2 measurement dataset from the Scripps CO2 Program

Data page: https://scrippsco2.ucsd.edu/data/atmospheric_co2/mlo.html

Direct link to daily dataset: https://scrippsco2.ucsd.edu/assets/data/atmospheric/stations/in_situ_co2/daily/daily_in_situ_co2_mlo.csv

You'll see in the "good" csv, that the data continues to almost the present day.

While in the "broken" csv, it's spotty data and only until 2006.

I suspect that something is broken in the data owner's pipeline, but I haven't been able to bring it to their attention.

I've tried:

  • Emailing the person listed in the "data sharing policy"

How can I report this "broken" dataset?

Via some emails, I was able to make contact with some people responsible for the data - and they have informed me that the daily CSV has been corrected.
