What is ICOS?

ICOS is a pan-European research infrastructure for quantifying and understanding the greenhouse gas balance of Europe and its neighbouring regions. ICOS has received the official ERIC status 20 November 2015 (more on this in our NEWS section). ICOS now has 12 member countries and involves more than 120 measurement locations where greenhouse gas concentrations and fluxes are measured. ICOS provides long term and high quality observations, and plans to expand to many more countries and stations in the near future.
