#ICOScapes – Raising awareness on climate change through photographs
The #ICOScapes Photo Exhibition is now available for you to enjoy from the comfort of your couch.
The photographs and videos of the virtual #ICOScapes exhibition highlight unique environments across Europe, where scientists work at ICOS greenhouse gas measurement stations. Observing the level of greenhouse gases is essential for predicting climate change and mitigating its consequences. Data from observations are used both for research and for the international policy making.
Photos and videos in the virtual exhibition are taken by the famous nature and wildlife photographer Konsta Punkka during his visits to the ICOS greenhouse gas measurement sites in 12 European countries between 2017–2018. From the hundreds of photographs, 24 pictures from 12 locations were selected to the exhibition.
The virtual exhibition is open from April 26 to September 15, 2021 at www.icos-cp.eu/icoscapes
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 ecosystems and oceans. This information is essential for predicting and mitigating climate change. The standardised ICOS data is based on the measurements from close to 150 stations across 13 European countries.
