ICOS contribution to science

The high quality data and related products provided by ICOS are becoming part of a global system of science and observation that supports the political processes following the Paris Agreement. We provide an added value of data from three domains (atmosphere, ecosystem, ocean) that can be combined, making cross-comparisons and original research ideas possible.

ICOS data on is used by scientists who seek to understand the Earth System and by various governmental bodies and international organisations that need science-based and relevant information on greenhouse gases in their decision making, and in efforts to mitigate the consequences of climate change.
