Short summary
In this study, we presented a time series analysis of a 36-year composite CO2 measurement record at Mount Zugspitze in Germany. Compared with other GAW observatories, Zugspitze proves to be a highly suitable site for monitoring the background levels of air components using proper data selection procedures. Detailed analyses of long-term trends and seasonality, as well as a thorough study of combined weekly periodicity and diurnal cycles, were conducted.
