  3. 3. ICOS Atmospheric Stations: Spatial Characterization of CO2 Footprint Areas and Evaluating the Uncertainties of Modelled CO2 Concentrations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Ida Storm; [2020]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; ICOS; Carbon dioxide; Modelling; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this thesis is to present and analyze spatial characteristics of 31 different European atmospheric measurement stations in the ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) station network. The characterization includes quantification of where air arriving at the stations can be expected to have come from, as well as a breakdown of what these areas cover with regards to land cover, point source emissions and population.
