UNRAVELING EARTH'S GREENHOUSE GAS BALANCE WITH MEASUREMENTS

ICOS, the Integrated Carbon Observation System, is a European Research Infrastructure that provides long-term observations for better understanding the carbon cycle and greenhouse gas emissions above Europe. ICOS enables prediction of the future climate and the evaluation of activities aimed at the mitigation of climate change.

ICOS Belgium network
consists of six ecosystem monitoring stations, three ocean monitoring stations and one atmosphere monitoring stations
For schools
learn about climate change with our children’s workshop
