Welcome to 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.

ICOS is built up as a collaboration of nationally operated measurement stations in 17 European countries.

ICOS provides 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.

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

ICOS Sweden invites other research groups to use the infrastructure. Please download and complete the application form and follow the instructions mentioned in the form.
