ICOS Carbon Portal

On this page:

ICOS Carbon Portal offers free access to high-quality and standardised greenhouse gas data, as well as to scientific and educational products and services. The Carbon Portal is a ‘one-stop shop’ for all ICOS data products.

Carbon Portal manages data security, enforcement of the ICOS data policy, with user-friendly (and machine-friendly) internet- and other computer-network based interfaces. It organises long-term archiving of ICOS data products to guarantee their safe storage, future access and easy re-use.

Data handling is the key for the high ICOS data quality. ICOS has created a transparent, documented and reproducible process throughout the data life cycle: from the measurements at the station via the Thematic Centres and the ICOS Carbon Portal to the user. All data distributed from the stations and going through the Central Facilities, are distributed in Carbon Portal. We are following the international developments in FAIR data management to build interoperable systems and make ICOS data free available in a transparent way.

The Carbon Portal is hosted by the Lund University in Sweden and Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
