Only a couple more weeks left until the ICOS Science Conference 2022 – and only a handful of spots remain! The conference will be organised in Utrecht, Netherlands, and online around the world on 13–15 September. Make sure to register soon, especially if you’re planning on joining us in person, as places are limited. In the meanwhile, you can read more about this year's presentations and speakers in the newly published Book of Abstracts.
Our summer article series took a closer look into fieldwork at ICOS stations. What does fieldwork look like at various ICOS stations? And what kind of insight can you get for your own research from doing fieldwork? We interviewed station employees from the Ecosystem station Bily Kriz in Czechia, Ocean station Östergarnsholm in Sweden, and Izaña Atmosphere station in Spain.

The ICOS Cities project aims to develop tools for systematic observations to monitor the level of greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas. As part of the project two major system installations were successfully finalised on a tall tower in Zurich (Hardau II), Switzerland, earlier this month. It is expected that these measurement systems will result in precise attribution of carbon dioxide emissions in an urban area.
