What is ICOS
ICOS Research Infrastructure is an extensive European network of standardized and integrated greenhouse gas monitoring stations for advanced carbon cycle research.
ICOS RI integrates atmospheric, ecosystem and ocean greenhouse gas observations to provide long term and reliable data for research, policy making, and the general public. ICOS RI brings together national research communities and highly standardised measurement stations and, through coordination and support, constitutes a European-wide research infrastructure that serves both scientists and society.
More information on ICOS RI.
An extensive network of standardized and integrated atmosphere, ecosystem and ocean monitoring stations forms the ICOS Research Infrastructure.
Atmospheric Thematic Centre (ATC)
The atmosphere network consists of more than 50 atmospheric tall towers measuring greenhouse gas concentrations.
Ecosystem Thematic Centre (ETC)
The Ecosystem network consists of more than 60 monitoring stations measuring exchanges of greenhouse gases and energy between ecosystems and atmosphere, and ecosystem variables.
Contact the station Principal Investigator (PI) for research possibilities and data use.
