Fourth ICOS Ocean MSA and OTC meeting

The fourth ICOS OTC and MSA meeting was held in Bergen 1-2 March. The target group for the meeting was all station PIs in the ocean network and representatives of the Ocean Thematic Center hosted by the Bjerknes Centre, Uni Research Climate and Geophysical Institute. The aim of the meeting was to agree on criteria for the station labelling of the different ocean stations. Most stations are operational today, but after station labelling, the stations provide high-quality certified traceable ICOS data used to calculate the ocean's role in the carbon cycle in particular concerning the recording of greenhouse gases due to human emission.
