The Integrated Carbon Observation System, ICOS, is a European-wide greenhouse gas research infrastructure. ICOS produces standardised data on greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, as well as on carbon fluxes between the atmosphere, the earth and oceans. This information is being used by scientists as well as by decision makers in predicting and mitigating climate change. The high-quality and open ICOS data is based on the measurements from over 140 stations across 14 European countries.
ICOS offers many opportunities to scientists and students in the field.
ICOS fosters Europe’s scientific competence and competitiveness by strategically pooling available resources linked to greenhouse gas measurements.
