Hello from icos station in czech republic! 🇨🇿 here we are surrounded by artificial lakes in a forest that is in kind of transition between dry and wet environment.
here, man-made changes in water flow as well as warming climate can alter the balance of greenhouse gases in the area, which may lead to a change in behaviour of the whole forest 🌳💧 #icoscapes 📷: @kpunkka
Some #behindthescenes pictures from #icoscapes visit to #icosfrance site in #saclay.
the station consists of 100m tall tower in peri-urban environment.
what makes the site special is its location in region of intense gradients between #paris megacity and the rural areas of #iledefrance .
did you know that paris emits 12% of antropogenic #co2 emissions in france?
#behindthescenes of #icoscapes campaign in the icos ecosystem station in lanžhot, czechia. lanžhot is one of the first floodplain forest stations in europe.

Just another work day at at the sea 😄 our brave scientists changing filters at the icos data buoy in the north sea! the buoy collects data on greenhouse gases in the sea that will help to describe the biogeochemical status of the belgian coastal waters 🌊🔬 #icoscapes 🎬: @kpunkka
Oceans cover more than 2/3 of the earth's surface and absorb about 25 % of the human-made co2 emission from the air. deep oceans store about 60 times more co2 than the atmosphere. that's huge! and that's why we measure greenhouse gases also in the ocean, in addition to the atmosphere and to the land 🌊 #icoscapes 📷: @kpunkka
Hello from simon stevin research vessel! 🚢 simon sails the southern bight of the north sea & the eastern part of the english channel. on this boat, we're measuring greenhouse gases in the ocean that can have serious effect on marine environments 🐚 #icoscapes 📷: @kpunkka
