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.
This is a #repost from @icosri via @PhotoAroundApp "Working at this altitude can sometimes be a challenge because the thin air and a lack of oxygen are giving you a hard time to breath. 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
