GRUAN is an international reference network of about thirty stations dedicated to the observation of key climatological variables between the surface and the stratosphere by radiosoundings. Several French organisations have […]

ICOS – National Observation Service ICOS France Atmosphere (SIFA)

ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) is a European Research Infrastructure for measuring atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases and fluxes on ecosystems and the ocean. As the increase in greenhouse gases is the main cause of climate change, the interest of ICOS is to allow, in the long term, the monitoring of their sources and sinks. This monitoring will provide verification of emissions and sinks independent of fossil emission inventories and land use data. The ICOS infrastructure mobilises more than 500 researchers and engineers from 17 European countries; it is a key element of the European Research Infrastructure Roadmap (ESFRI) and constitutes a Very Large Research Instrument (TGIR) of the French national research strategy. The French part of ICOS is coordinated by the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) which depends on CEA, CNRS, UVSQ and INRA.
