InGOS is an EU funded IA (Integrating Activity) project targeted at improving and extending the European observation capacity for non-CO2 greenhouse gases.
There is a big need to support and integrate the observing capacity of Europe on non-CO2 greenhouse gases. The emissions of these gases are very uncertain and it is unknown how future climate change will feedback into these (mainly land use coupled) emissions. The infrastructure project will work on standardizing the measurements, strengthen the existing observation sites into supersites, capacity building in new member states, and prepare for integration of the network with other networks already in place or currently being set up (e.g. ICOS). Attribution of source categories by using advanced isotope techniques and data-assimilation methods using high resolution transport model will be an integral part of the network to allow design and evaluation of the measurements and will link the network to remote sensing data and bottom up inventory developments.
This site hosts the Ecosystem Database of the InGOS measurements, including experiment results that are available to the interested users. For more information about the project visit the official webpage at http://www.ingos-infrastructure.eu
