ICOS Sweden
ICOS - Integrated Carbon Observation System - is a European research infrastructure to quantify and understand the greenhouse gas balance of the European continent and of adjacent regions.

Click here for some examples (in Swedish) on how data from the ICOS Sweden network can be used to unravel the European carbon balance.

ICOS is built up as a collaboration of nationally operated measurement stations in 12 European countries.

ICOS Sweden is the Swedish contribution to this European effort and is a cooperation of several research institutes.

ICOS will provide long-term observations (20+ years) required to understand the present state and predict future behaviour of climate, the global carbon cycle and greenhouse gas emissions.

ICOS operates ecosystem, atmospheric, and oceanic networks of standardized, high precision measurement stations.
