Oceans cover more than 2/3 of the Earth's surface and absorb about 25 % of the human-made CO2 emission from the air. Deep oceans store about 60 times more CO2 than the atmosphere. That's huge! And that's why we measure greenhouse gases also in the ocean, in addition to the atmosphere and to the land 🌊 #ICOScapes πŸ“·: @kpunkka

Beautiful sunset here at ICOS Jungfraujoch station which can be, believe or not, reached by Europe's highest railway! #ICOScapes

ICOS Jungfraujoch Station is one of many research stations that are a part of:
ICOS RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE

Integrated Carbon Observation System Research Infrastructure (ICOS RI) integrates atmosphere, ecosystem and ocean greenhouse gas observations to provide timely and reliable data for research, policy making, and the general public. ICOS RI brings together high quality European national research communities and measurement stations and, through coordination and support, constitutes a European-wide research infrastructure that serves both scientists and society.
ICOS RI consists of a number of researchers and measurement stations, governance bodies and a carbon data portal, collaborating across Europe.

ICOS National Networks form the backbone of ICOS RI
ICOS RI has more than 100 measurement stations in twelve European countries. These stations measure greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere and fluxes over the terrestrial and marine ecosystems. The ICOS stations are run and funded by national funding agencies, institutes and universities, demonstrating an impressive joint effort to enable climate change research.
At the moment ICOS Research Infrastructure has more than 100 stations in 12 European countries. The current ICOS Atmosphere and Ecosystem Networks include more than 30 atmospheric and around 70 ecosystem stations located across Europe. The ICOS Ocean Network covers the North Atlantic and European marginal seas. The Ocean Observation System will consist of more than 20 facilities: Voluntary Observatory Ships, fixed stations and research vessels.

But I feel really privileged to work up here. This is such a beautiful & unique place, and also part of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage."
- Martin, Senior Scientist at ICOS Jungfraujoch station

Hello from Simon Stevin research vessel! 🚒 Simon sails the Southern Bight of the North Sea & the Eastern part of the English Channel. On this boat, we're measuring greenhouse gases in the ocean that can have serious effect on marine environments 🐚 #ICOScapes πŸ“·: @kpunkka

Towards the weekend! Beautiful last April days at Castelporziano measurement tower 🌳 #ICOScapes πŸ“·: @kpunkka

Meten is weten! Het VLIZ meet broeikasgassen binnen ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) vanop de RV Simon Stevin en deze Lotto-boei @kpunkka @icosri #ICOScapes

Beautiful day to change the filters to our data buoy at the coastal Belgium 🌊 #ICOScapes #makingof

Say hello to this curious little stoat! πŸ‘‹ What do you think caught its attention?

Stoats are in the same family as weasels and ferrets. Stoats are known to change the color of their coats to white in the winter, and a chestnut brown in the spring and summer months, which allows them to camoflauge with their surroundings. They are typically between 6-12 inches (15-30 cm) long, but don't let their small size and cute looks fool you - stoats are ferocious hunters that can take down very large rabbits and occasionally birds.

"On the second night of my stay in Zackenberg research station in Greenland I was ready to go to sleep after hiking around the valley for past 5 hours. I didn’t see any wildlife while hiking so it was a big surprise to see this fella waiting for me in front of my cabin. Sometimes I feel the animals try to find me not the other way around. #icoscapes"

Today we hiked on Europe's largest glacier, located next to ICOS Jungfraujoch station. Due to climate change, the glacier is melting rapidly each year 🌑 #makingof #ICOScapes

~ Greetings from @icosri Jungfraujoch station in Bernese Alps. The station is located in the saddle between 4000 meter peaks Jungfrau and MΓΆnch. I’m here to document the life in the research station and the research measurements for the next 4 days. #icoscapes
