The ICOS network operates in three distinct domains: Atmosphere, Ecosystem and Ocean. The stations in 12 countries are run and funded by national institutes, universities and funding agencies. Most of the ICOS stations are fixed stations like (tall) towers or buoys, whereas the Ocean domain has also the Ships of Opportunity and Research Vessels roaming the seas.
ICOS stations and some of their characteristics are listed in the table below. You can use the search option for example to view the stations in a specific country, domain or a certain station class.
