Records of trace gas composition of the atmosphere originating from mountain stations are difficult to interpret in terms of continental gas balances due to complex topography and local wind patterns. Kasprowy Wierch station, located in the High Tatra Mountains, Poland, provides datasets to European GHG databases and can be used for regional and continental balances of trace gases in Earth’s atmosphere. Although it suffers from strong influence of local valley winds, the concentration record obtained at Kasprowy Wierch contains also a discernible fraction of methane (up to 100 ppb) emitted mainly by large regional source of this gas (Silesian Coal Basin) located ca. 150 km north-west of Kasprowy Wierch. Comparison of GOSAT satellite CH4 record in the pixel including High Tatras at the level of 850 hPa with the data obtained at Kasprowy Wierch mountain station revealed surprisingly good correlation, even for relatively short time intervals.
