We present the organization, structure, instrumentation, and measurements of the Northeast Corridor greenhouse gas observation network. This network of tower-based in-situ carbon dioxide and methane observations was established in 2015 with the goal of quantifying emissions of these gases in urban areas in the North-eastern United States. A specific focus of the network is the cities of Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., USA, with a high density of observation stations in these two urban areas. Additional observation stations are scattered throughout the US Northeast, established to complement other existing urban and regional networks and to investigate emissions throughout this complex region with a high population density and multiple metropolitan areas.
