ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) is a European-wide greenhouse gas research infrastructure. ICOS produces standardised data on greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, as well as on carbon circulation between the atmosphere, the earth, and oceans. This information is being used by scientists as well as by decision makers for predicting and mitigating climate change. The ICOS data is based on the measurements from 134 stations across 12 European countries.

The #ICOScapes Photo Exhibition at the Kimnaasi hall at the Natural History Museum from 23rd January to 15th March 2020. Visit to the photo exhibition is included in the museum’s entrance fee.
