The Integrated Carbon Observation System, ICOS is a distributed European-wide research infrastructure producing high-precision data on greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere and carbon fluxes between the atmosphere, land, and oceans. This is important because globally the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is rising continuously, causing the climate to change.

ICOS provides standardized and open data from 149 measurement stations across 14 European countries. ICOS data is used by scientists who seek to understand this Earth System and by various governmental bodies and international organizations that need science-based and relevant information on greenhouse gases in their decision-making, and in efforts to mitigate the consequences of climate change.

The biennial ICOS Science Conference gathers close to 400 scientists to discuss scientific topics around greenhouse gas measurements and climate change. The themes of the conference vary from purely scientific sessions to ones related to policy making, education and new developments in instrument manufacturing.

The 5th ICOS Science Conference took place in Utrecht and online around the world, on September 13-15, 2022. The overarching theme of the conference was “Tracking progress to carbon neutrality.” 

The researcher Hanna Vahter held a poster presentation to give insights on her latest research project.
