ICOS-INWIRE - ICOS Improved sensors, NetWork and Interoperability for GMES


The ICOS-INWIRE project started on the 01 January 2013 and will be finish in the end of year 2015.
The fundamental objective of the project is to enhance capabilities of the ICOS  infrastructure for GHG monitoring, in order to meet the needs of operational users in the GMES Atmosphere and Land Core Service Elements. It will achieve this by:
  1. Developing and testing autonomous stations equipped with greenhouse gas concentration (WP2) and fluxes (WP3) sensor systems able to operate autonomously in remote areas and in technically challenging environments.
  2. Enhancing the capabilities of the ICOS atmospheric and ecosystem networks through the ICOS Thematic Centers for producing new timely delivery and near real time data products as well as of GHG surface (ICOS) and total column (TCCON) concentration, boundary layer height from lidar (WP3), and eddy-covariance GHG fluxes (WP5)
  3. Developing integrated data-products combining ground-based upward looking remote sensing and surface in-situ measurements to validate satellite retrievals (WP5 and WP6)
  4. Improving inter-operability between ICOS and other in-situ GHG monitoring networks, through the development of innovative software and database tools (WP6) that will deliver data to the GMES 



This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n°313169.
