ICOS Data Policy document

The aim of the ICOS Data Policy is to guarantee a smooth data flow from the ICOS Research Infrastructure (ICOS RI) National Networks, Central Facilities (such as the Ocean Thematic Centre) and Carbon Portal to the users to provide open, easy access to ICOS data and develop user-driven services for user communities. The ICOS Data Policy Document can be found here.
