ICOS - Integrated Carbon Observation System - is a European research infrastructure to quantify and understand the greenhouse gas balance of the European continent and of adjacent regions. It's built up as a collaboration of nationally operated measurement stations in 17 European countries, where
ICOS Sweden is the Swedish contribution to this European effort and is a cooperation of several research institutes.

At the Norunda field station measurements was made during the solar eclipse on March 20. The signal was clear although the weather conditions wasn't the best during the eclipse.
