Lay Summary (German)

Lead
Die Schweiz beteiligt sich seit 2013 am europäischen Forschungsinfrastruktur-Konsortium ICOS RI (Integrated Carbon Observation System Research Infrastructure), welches zum Ziel hat, den Kohlenstoffkreislauf sowie die Treibhausgasflüsse über Europa mit Hilfe von standardisierten Messungen (d. h. einheitlichen Messinstrumenten und Protokollen) zu beobachten und zu erforschen. Das nationale Konsortium ICOS-CH ist mit zwei Messstationen der höchsten Klasse (Jungfraujoch und Davos-Seehornwald) in ICOS RI vertreten. Während die ICOS-CH Partner Uni Bern, Uni Basel, Empa und MeteoSchweiz vorwiegend für die Messungen auf dem Jungfraujoch verantwortlich sind, sind die Partner ETH Zürich (National Focal Point) und WSL am Standort Davos-Seehornwald aktiv.
Lay summary

In der Phase 2 (2017-2020) von ICOS-CH werden die beiden sogenannten Klasse 1 Standorte Jungfraujoch und Davos so aufgerüstet, dass sie den Anforderungen und Standards von ICOS RI erfüllen. Das Personal an den Partnerinstitutionen koordiniert, unterhält und betreibt die beiden Standorte und stellt den Datentransfer an ICOS RI sicher. So können zwei Schweizer Standorte mit exzellenter Infrastruktur geschaffen werden, die Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern die einzigartige Möglichkeit gibt, Forschung zur Treibhausgasflüssen zu betreiben und die Daten nahezu in Echtzeit nutzen zu können.

Beide Standorte werden seit vielen Jahren erfolgreich betrieben und geniessen international hohes Ansehen. Mit ICOS-CH Phase 2 wird dies weitergeführt. Die beiden Standorte liefern zudem Daten und Informationen an Interessenträger in der Schweiz und in Europa. Mit den Forschungszielen wird ICOS-CH zur Eindämmung bzw. zur Bewältigung des Klimawandels beitragen, insbesondere mit umfassenden Untersuchungen zum Treibhausgasinventar, zur indirekten Inventarverifikation sowie zur Quantifizierung von Boden und Ökosystemen als Treibhausgasquellen oder –senken.

Abstract
This is the release of the observational data product for eddy covariance fluxes at 52 stations in the ecosystem domain, part of them outside the ICOS network, from the Drought-2018 team and covering the period 1989-2018. The data are in the standard format used for the ICOS L2 ecosystem products and also used by other regional networks like AmeriFlux. The processing has been done using the ONEFlux processing pipeline (https://github.com/icos-etc/ONEFlux) and is fully compliant and integrable with the FLUXNET2015 release (https://fluxnet.fluxdata.org/) and other datasets processed with the same pipeline (AmeriFlux, ICOS L2)

Repository FLUXNET
Abstract
FLUXNET-CH4 is an initiative led by the Global Carbon Project, in close partnership with AmeriFlux and EuroFlux, to compile a global database of eddy covariance (EC) methane flux measurements. Data are standardized, post-processed (i.e., partitioned and gap-filled), and released as FLUXNET-CH4 (Delwiche et al. 2021, Knox et al. 2019). FLUXNET-CH4 Version 1.0 includes data from 81 sites, representing freshwater, coastal, upland, natural, and managed ecosystems. The near continuous, high-frequency nature of EC measurements offers significant promise for improving our understanding of ecosystem-scale CH4 flux dynamics. FLUXNET-CH4 exists thanks to the hard work of the site teams who collected these data and their willingness to participate in the FLUXNET-CH4 effort. Please refer to the Data Policy page for data usage and acknowledgement requirements. Funding for the FLUXNET-CH4 initiative was provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the USGS Powell Center.

Abstract
The FLUXNET2015 Dataset includes data collected at sites from multiple regional flux networks. The preparation of this FLUXNET Dataset has been possible thanks only to the efforts of many scientists and technicians around the world and the coordination among teams from regional networks. The previous versions of FLUXNET Dataset releases are the FLUXNET Marconi Dataset (2000) and the FLUXNET LaThuile Dataset (2007). The FLUXNET2015 Dataset includes several improvements to the data quality control protocols and the data processing pipeline. Examples include close interaction with tower teams to improve data quality, new methods for uncertainty quantification, use of reanalysis data to fill long gaps of micrometeorological variable records, among others (see the data processing pipeline page for details). Refer to the Data Policy page for data usage and acknowledgement requirements.

Abstract

ICOS-CH, Phase 2, is the Swiss contribution to the Integrated Carbon Observation System Research Infrastructure (ICOS RI) which entered into its operational phase end of 2015 (as Integrated Carbon Observation System European Research Infrastructure Consortium, ICOS ERIC). Overarching goals of ICOS RI are to quantify and to understand the greenhouse gas (GHG) balance of the European continent and adjacent regions based on highly standardized measurements (i.e., sensors and protocols) in the atmosphere, in terrestrial ecosystems and in the ocean, and to distribute data and data products to stakeholders and user communities. With the ICOS-CH network, i.e. ETH Zurich (National Focal Point), Empa, WSL, University of Bern, University of Basel and MeteoSwiss, Switzerland participates in ICOS RI since its beginning in 2013. Two Class 1 sites had been chosen due to their science history: one ecosystem site (Davos, DAV) and one atmospheric site (Jungfraujoch, JFJ). During Phase 1 (2013-2017), both sites have been upgraded according to ICOS RI requirements, when specifications and protocols were available, while basic measurements continued. At DAV, a new data acquisition system, near-real time data transfer and data processing were developed, tested and implemented. 20 years of data were reprocessed and made openly available. Five large automated chambers to measure forest floor GHG fluxes were built and installed in the field, one of them tested for operation during winter. Sensors at the tower were renewed, new equipment for net ecosystem CH4 and N2O fluxes was installed and runs - compliant with ICOS - since end of 2015. At JFJ, ICOS conforming continuous GHG analysers were installed and underwent the required testing. The ICOS mobile lab was installed at JFJ for six weeks to audit setup and instrument performance. Automated data processing was implemented to allow direct data transfer to the central database. A ceilometer to determine the planetary boundary layer (PBL) height above JFJ was installed at the Kleine Scheidegg, approximately 5 km north and 1.5 km below JFJ, and extensive algorithms for PBL detection were developed and validated. Flask sampling continued. Both sites were among the first within ICOS RI to enter the labelling process in 2016 (Step 1 successfully finished, Step 2 on-going). Swiss staff participated in training courses on ICOS quality assurance procedures.In Phase 2 (2017-2020), the Swiss contribution to ICOS RI will be coordinated within Subproject A, also responsible for communication within and beyond ICOS-CH. The site infrastructure needs to be completed according to the finalized ICOS RI protocols (in Subprojects B and C for DAV and JFJ, respectively). Then, both sites need to be maintained at Class 1 level, i.e., with comprehensive variable sets, regular measurement campaigns, very high data quality requirements, fast response/repair times when sensors should fail, and near real-time data provision to ICOS RI. This requires continuous data quality assurance and quality control, ensured by well-trained technical staff and data scientists. Thus, ICOS-CH provides a unique opportunity for scientists to contribute to excellent research and scientific innovations based on high precision, continuous, open-access data, a comprehensive set of measurements, an excellent infrastructure as well as on-site validations for research related to Earth system science.
