ICOS RI ‐ Integrated Carbon Observation System Research Infrastructure‐ is a European research infrastructure to quantify and understand the greenhouse gas balance of the European continent and of adjacent regions. ICOS is a collaboration of 17 European countries and provides long‐term observations (20+ years).
ICOS Sweden is the Swedish contribution to this European effort and is a cooperation of Lund University (host), University of Gothenburg, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Stockholm University, Uppsala University, and Swedish Polar Research Secretariat. The measurement sites are located at seven different sites, from north to south: Abisko‐Stordalen (subarctic mire), Degerö (boreal mire), Svartberget (boreal pine and spruce forest), Norunda (boreal pine and spruce forest), Östergarnsholm (marine station), Lanna (agricultural land), and Hyltemossa (boreal spruce forest).
Organizers: Maj-Lena Linderson, ICOS Sweden Scientific Coordinator, and Anna Rutgersson, PI for the Östergarnsholm station
