2014-05-12: Östergarnsholm is a new ICOS Sweden measurement station.
The Östergarnsholm marine measurement station, located at a small island slightly east of Gotland, has been accepted as an ICOS Sweden combined ecosystem and marine measurement station. The station was established in 1995 for long-term monitoring of and research on air-sea interactions and is equipped with a 30 m high instrumented tower, and buoys in the water outside the island. Östergarnsholm is run by Anna Rutgersson, Uppsala University and the University will thus become a new partner of ICOS Sweden.
