The Nordic ICOS Symposium is a bi-annual joint venture of the Nordic ICOS RI national networks ICOS Denmark, ICOS Finland, ICOS Norway and ICOS Sweden. In 2019, it will be hosted by Sweden.
ICOS stations observe greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere as well as carbon fluxes between the atmosphere, the land surface and the oceans. The Nordic national ICOS networks in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden cover northern climates and ecosystems which are undergoing the fastest climate change in the world. Climate warming could destabilize carbon stored in boreal forest soils, accelerate degradation of the mires, and acidification of the seas, with concomitant impact on economy and commitment to enhance carbon sinks. The 2nd Nordic ICOS Symposium aims to foster the discussion on sources and sinks of greenhouse gases in Nordic countries, to stimulate interactions between research communities and between researchers and stakeholders.
