Icos inwire overview

ICOS – Integrated Carbon Observing System

ESFRI Research Infrastructure for quantifying and understanding the greenhousegases budget of Europe and adjacent regions

ICOS integratesterrestrial, atmospheric and oceanic observationsatvarious sites into a coherent, high-precisiondataset, managed by ThematicCenters.

Long-term measurement networks dedicated to GHG:

  • 40 atmospheric stations

  • 40 ecosystem stations

  • 10 oceanship-lines

Icos facts figures

ICOS facts & figures

  • 13 countries committedatministeriallevel, +2 joining

  • More than30researchlabsactivelyinvolved, 400+ scientists

  • Central facilities in France, Italy, Germany; HQ in Finland

  • Creationof Europeanlegalorganization ERIC: pre-submissionto EC in June

  • Providein-situ observations to deliver flux mapsat 10 km scaleweeklywithaccuracy <10-50 g C m-2 y-1

  • Main parameters: CO2 and CH4 concentrations, CO2 EC fluxes

  • Operations: 20 years or more

  • Accuracy: compliant to international standards

  • Coverage: Europe and otherregions (Africa, Siberia, oceans)

Ghg data for reanalysis and forecast

GHG data for reanalysis and forecast

  • Near real time data -> validation of forecast

  • Final data -> for re-analysis

  • Untilnowexperimental service, jitter, lots of trial-and-error

  • Usersalreadytook up & consideritwellestablished!

Enhance interoperability with other ghg networks

Enhanceinteroperabilitywithother GHG networks

  • Assessthe compatibility requirementsof different GHG atmosphericnetworks (usinghigh-res. inverse modeling)

  • Network design assessment over Europe, toward maximum reduction of flux uncertainties

  • Ensurenetwork compatibility withother networks incl. TCCON

  • Validation of satellite GHG products (ESA-GHG-CCI)
