Get data from ICOS Sweden stations



Data at the Carbon Portal
Within ICOS RI, all raw measurement data from the individual stations are being 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 are being made accessible to end users via the ICOS RI Carbon Portal as ICOS certified data. This data processing and quality control through the Thematic Centers starts, once a station has finished step 2 in the ICOS labeling process.
But there are also data from before the labeling or variables that are not part of the ICOS RI monitoring progam. Data from the ICOS Sweden stations and other stations within the ICOS RIcan be found on the ICOS RI Carbon Portal.
Here , we try to give you an overview how to find what you are looking for. If you have problems finding what you are looking for, please contact us by mail.

ICOS certified data:
Atmosphere data: CH4, CO2, CO concentration data and basic meteorological state variables (wind speed and direction, air temperature, air pressure)
near real time data (updated daily)project: ICOS, Theme: Atmospheric data, Data level: 1Swedish stations available: Hyltemossa (HTM), Norunda (NOR), Svartberget (SVB)
final quality controlled data (last update: August 2019)project: ICOS, Theme: Atmospheric data, Data level: 2Swedish stations available: Hyltemossa (HTM), Norunda (NOR), Svartberget (SVB)

non ICOS certified data:
Ecosystem data from 2014 to end of 2018: The extreme weather conitions in 2018 called many researchers to provide data for synthesis analyses. In this dataset, the step from raw data to fluxes was done by the stations providing the data, while the quality control, storage term calculation, ustar filtering, gap-filling, calculation of ecosystem respiration and GPP was done by the Ecosystem thematic center. The dataset is available for ICOS Sweden stations, except Abisko-Stordalen from the Carbon Portal for the time period 2014 (2015 for Hyltemossa) to end of 2018. The preparation of the Drought 2018 dataset followed the protocol of the FLUXNET2015 Dataset. A description can be found at the Fluxnet website.

ICOS Sweden data: Flux data that was uploaded before data releases from the Thematic Centers were available, but also covering variables that are not part of the data releases through the Thematic Centers. these data sets have only gone through a rough quality check. The user is strongly advised to check the data before use. When using the data, please, refer to it as "data fom the ICOS Sweden national infrastructure" and the respective station PI.
mainly machine controlled dataproject: 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).
How to cite data from ICOS Sweden
Data from ICOS Sweden stations are open under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License following the FAIR principles. We thus requires a proper reference and citation of the ICOS data, using the exact citation (including the provided doi or pid) as provided by ICOS. e.g. :We acknowledge ICOS for either (1) provisioning of measurement facilities and experimental support or (2) providing data from x. y and z, and we would like to thank x, y and z for assistance in using the infrastructure/analyzing the data. ICOS is funded through the Swedish Research Council.
We kindly ask you to inform the data providers, traceable through the metadata connected to the provided DOI or PID, when the data is used for publication(s), and to offer them the possibility to comment and/or offer them co-authorship or acknowledgement in the publication when this is justified by the added value of the data for your results.
If the main content of a scientific paper is based on ICOS Sweden data, we kindly ask to acknowledge the Swedish Research Council (SRC) who co-finances ICOS Sweden under the Grant number 2015-06020.
