- is an European research infrastructure for quantifying and
understanding the greenhouse gas balance of the European continent and
of adjacent regions. The infrastructure is built up as a collaboration
of nationally operated measurement stations in 17 European countries.
ICOS Sweden ( is the Swedish contribution to
this European effort.

SITES - Swedish Infrastructure for Ecosystem Science, is a national
coordinated infrastructure for terrestrial and limnological field
research ( SITES contributes to the strengthening of
Swedish research based on measurements and experiments conducted in the
field and is available for all researchers on equal terms, regardless of
affiliation. SITES consists of nine research stations in Sweden and SLU
