The ICOS Sweden consists of 10 stations, of which six are ecosystem stations, three atmosphere stations and one ocean station. The network of stations cover the full length of Sweden.
The stations provide essential – and otherwise scarce – data on greenhouse gases from northern parts of the world that are warming the fastest. ICOS Sweden measures greenhouse gases in boreal forests and boreal to subarctic mires, and at the Baltic Sea. The atmosphere stations are uniquely co-located with ecosystem stations. ICOS Sweden stations act as test sites for national inventory systems and are open for advanced research to support the biogeochemistry research in Sweden.
ICOS Sweden includes five partners: Lund University, Gothenburg University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala University and Swedish Polar Research Secretariat. The ICOS Carbon Portal, the platform for observational data and elaborated data products, is also located in Sweden. ICOS Sweden is a National Network, whereas the Carbon Portal is a Central Facility of ICOS.
