NETWORK AND MEASUREMENTS

Our stations

ICOS Sweden perform measurements from representative Nordic ecosystems: measurement stations from Abisko in the north to Hyltemossa in the south cover mires, boreal forests and the Baltic Sea. There are three atmosphere stations with high masts, six ecosystem stations and two ocean station.

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. For questions please contact the SPI for the station.

Different Station Types

Atmosphere stations deliver primarily data on greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. For common gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), the measurements are continous. Other gases, such as CO and N2O, are measured periodically. Within ICOS Sweden there are three Atmosphere stations:

HyltemossaNorunda and Svartberget

Ecosystem stations provide primarily data on greenhouse gas concentrations and fluxes, as well as latent and sensible heat fluxes. In addition, several meteorological and soil parameters are measured. Furthermore, data on other ecosystem parameters are collected periodically. Within ICOS Sweden there are six Ecosystem stations:
Hyltemossa, MycklemossenNorunda, Degerö, Svartberget, and Abisko-Stordalen

Lanna was started as an ICOS Sweden station and there is data available, but the station will not continue after 2020. 

Ocean stations measure CO2 and other gases from ocean surface waters and the near-surface atmosphere. ICOS Sweden includes two Ocean stations:
Östergarnsholm and Tavastland
