Troodos is the highest location in Cyprus, at an altitude above 1.8km. The Cyprus Atmospheric Observatory is in the preparations for installing a container-laboratory at the top of Cyprus, having already secured a suitable piece of land.

The location will allow CAO to sample from the free troposphere during the cooler half of the year, when the boundary layer is below 2,000 meters.
