ICOS Sweden performs measurements from representative Nordic ecosystems: Three Atmosphere stations with high masts, six Ecosystem stations and two Ocean stations cover mires, needleleaved forests and the Baltic Sea.
If you think that our station network is interesting for your research, for a visit, etc. do not hesitate to fill in our web form or write an email directly to the respective station team.
Different Station Types
Atmosphere stations continuously measure data on greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere and basic meteorological conditions. Additionally, descrete air samples are taken daily for possible analyses of other trace gases in the laboratory. ICOS Sweden operates three Atmosphere stations:
Hyltemossa, Norunda and Svartberget
Ecosystem stations provide primarily data on turbulent fluxes of greenhouse gases and energy. In addition, a wide range of meteorological parameters in the air and the soil are measured. Furthermore, data on other ecosystem parameters are collected periodically. ICOS Sweden operates six Ecosystem stations:
Hyltemossa, Mycklemossen, Norunda, Degerö, Svartberget, and Abisko-Stordalen.
Lanna was started as an ICOS Sweden station and there is data available, but the station has not been continued as part of ICOS Sweden after 2020.
Ocean stations measure CO2 and other gases from ocean surface waters and the near-surface atmosphere. ICOS Swedenoperates two Ocean stations:
Östergarnsholm and Tavastland
