Infrastructure ICOS Sweden
ICOS Sweden is the Swedish part of a European research infrastructure, ICOS RI, which aims to provide accessible high-quality data to enhance our understanding of sinks and emissions of greenhouse gases.
The project contributes to the long-term strengthening and consolidation of Swedish greenhouse gas-related research. ICOS Sweden currently includes a network of seven field stations and one station aboard a commercial vessel in the Baltic Sea, conducting continuous measurements. The station mix consists of six ecosystem stations, three atmospheric stations, and two ocean stations, spanning from Abisko in the north to Skåne in the south.
ICOS Sweden is organizationally located at CEC. Collaborative partners, in addition to Lund University, include the University of Gothenburg, SMHI, Uppsala University, the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Equipment and operations are jointly funded by the Swedish Research Council and the participating parties.
CEC is responsible for two of the research stations
CEC is responsible for ICOS Swedens research stations Hyltemossa in Skåne and Norunda in Uppland. More information and contacts are available at the stations websites:
