Get data from ICOS Sweden stations



Downloading data from the Carbon Portal
All raw measurement data from the individual stations will be sent to the respective ICOS RI Thematic Centers, where they will be quality controlled and evaluated following common data handling procedures. The raw data and all analysis results will then be stored in central databases, from where they can be made accessible to end users via the ICOS RI Carbon Portal.

This data processing and quality control through the Thematic Centers will start, once a station has finished step 2 in the ICOS labeling process.
Right now, there is ICOS certified data from the Atmosphere stations Hyltemossa, Svartberget and Norunda available at the ICOS RI Carbon Portal..
  • To download near real time data from the Atmosphere stations choose Project: ICOS, Theme: Atmospheric data, Data level: 1
  • To download final quality controlled data from the Atmosphere stations choose Project: ICOS, Theme: Atmospheric data, Data level: 2


Data from the Ecosystem stations can be (at present) downloaded from the Carbon Portal as ICOS Sweden data as level 1 near-real time data, which has been machine controlled.
  • To download data from the ICOS Sweden Ecosystem stations choose Project: ICOS Sweden, Theme: Ecosystem data, Data level: 1

Data is organized in monthly, resp. annual, thematically grouped files (ecosystem fluxes, above canopy meteo data, below canopy meteo data, gas concentration profile, and air temperature profile). That means that more than one variable is saved in a file. Please, click on the stations name to download an xlsx-file with the metainformation for all available variables:

We are working on uploading and making data available. At the moment (2018-06-07) only data from the stations Hyltemossa, Norunda, Svartberget, Lanna and Degerö are available for direct download. For any other data, please contact us by mail.
