EC grants ERIC status to Integrated Carbon Observation System
ICOS is a pan-European Research Infrastructure which provides harmonised and high-precision scientific data on carbon cycle and greenhouse gas budget and perturbations. It integrates atmosphere, ecosystem and ocean monitoring networks in order to provide the observational basis for a full European carbon balance and its trends. Long-term observations of the greenhouse gas emissions and their regional dynamics provided by ICOS will enable the evaluation of the mitigation activities against climate change.
