This paper describes the statistical analysis of annual trends in\nlong term datasets of greenhouse gas measurements taken over ten\nor more years. The analysis technique employs a bootstrap resampling\nmethod to determine both the long-term and intra-annual variability\nof the datasets, together with the uncertainties on the trend values.\nThe method has been applied to data from a European network of ground-based\nsolar FTIR instruments to determine the trends in the tropospheric,\nstratospheric and total columns of ozone, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide,\nmethane, ethane and HCFC-22. The suitability of the method has been\ndemonstrated through statistical validation of the technique, and\ncomparison with ground-based in-situ measurements and 3-D atmospheric\nmodels.
