This paper describes the statistical analysis of annual trends in
long term datasets of greenhouse gas measurements taken over ten
or more years. The analysis technique employs a bootstrap resampling
method to determine both the long-term and intra-annual variability
of the datasets, together with the uncertainties on the trend values.
The method has been applied to data from a European network of ground-based
solar FTIR instruments to determine the trends in the tropospheric,
stratospheric and total columns of ozone, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide,
methane, ethane and HCFC-22. The suitability of the method has been
demonstrated through statistical validation of the technique, and
comparison with ground-based in-situ measurements and 3-D atmospheric
