Data from the ICOS Sweden stations

The ICOS Sweden research infrastructure has been in operation at most stations since 2014. Three stations have even longer measurement records: Norunda and Östergarnsholm (since 1995), and Degerö (since 2001). All this data is available but in different ways.

Certified ICOS data, i.e. quality assured data gathered at ICOS stations that have been processed by the Thematic Centers, are stored and made available for visualization and FAIR download at the ICOS Carbon Portal. Here can also be found data from the Ecosystem stations in the Swedish National Network gathered from 2014 and forward. 
For Ocean station data from Östergarnsholm and SOOP Tavastland from before ICOS certification, please contact the Station Principal Investigators. 

If you are interested in data from the Norunda ES station gathered before 2014 or in data from the OS station Östergarnsholm, please, contact the respecive Station Principal Investigator. Data from the ES Degerö from before 2014 are included in the Drough2018 dataset.

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. Such data from the ecosystem stations within the Swedish National Network and other stations within the ICOS RI can be found on the ICOS RI Carbon Portal.
