Short summary
We present 159 measurements of the atmospheric mole fraction of nitrous oxide (N2O) and sulfur hexaflouride (SF6) from historic archived air samples collected at Cape Meares, Oregon (USA, 45.5°N, 124.0°W), between 1978 and 1996. These measurements add significantly to the historical record of the atmospheric composition for these important greenhouse gases. Results provide an analysis of the average atmospheric mixing ratio, growth rate, and seasonality for N2O and SF6 at midlatitudes.
