Near Real Time Data

ICOS Inwire

Access Near-Real-Time (NRT) Eddy-Covariance (EC) data has become important to improve model data fusion (MDF) processing and in particular land surface model (LSM) which simulate terrestrial biosphere exchanges of matter and energy. Also the Remote Sensing community can benefit from data con fluxes and radiation components released with one day delay. In addition NRT data can be useful to detect issues in the acquisition system by the station PIs. These data are clearly with a lower quality respect to the consolidated releases and this should be considered in the analysis and use.
Developed as demonstrator in the ICOS-INWIRE European project the NRT data are now routinely produced by the ICOS ETC and they are distributed through the ICOS Carbon Portal
