A new European network of some-more than 100 dimensions stations guard a growth in hothouse gases and make these information publicly available. The network is collected in the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS, see box), and a stations magnitude a growth in a apportion of hothouse gases in a atmosphere, as good as a sell of hothouse gases between a atmosphere, land, and sea. Data that are of good significance in sequence to observe a growth in meridian changes.

“The endless work that has been finished underneath a auspices of a EU in a past few years to peculiarity assure and order information from a new ICOS dimensions stations is an critical step towards carrying allied and arguable information on hothouse gases from all over Europe. We’ve not formerly had such data, that has finished it formidable to guard a growth in hothouse gases over a vast geographic area,” says Professor Kim Pilegaard, DTU Environment, plan manager and National Focal Point for ICOS Denmark.

Four of a ICOS dimensions stations are located in Denmark, in really opposite regions of a country. This is finished to have measurements from a opposite ecosystems that are standard in these latitudes. There is a measuring hire in an rural area, a forest, and an arctic wetland area in Greenland. In addition, hothouse gas concentrations in a atmosphere are totalled from a hire during a north-easternmost dilemma of Greenland. More stations are designed subsequently to be connected to a network.

Focus on meridian challenges
A photographer is now visiting a series of a dimensions stations, including a Danish Zackenberg hire in Greenland.

“We’ll use a photographs to emanate concentration on a meridian changes that we observe and guard using, among other instruments, information from a measuring stations”, says Kim Pilegaard. The photographs have been taken by a Finnish inlet and wildlife photographer Konsta Punkka.
