Welcome to ABC-IS

ABC-IS, the "Atmosphere, Biosphere, Climate - Integrated Station", studies the interactions between Atmosphere, Biosphere and Climate change, by continuous measurement of:

  • Reactive gas concentrations and aerosol characteristics, to track changes in short lived atmospheric species;
  • Greenhouse gas concentrations, to track changes in long lived atmospheric species;
  • Fluxes at forest canopy level, to track the response of vegetation to climate change and air pollution.
