Welcome to ICP Forests

– the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests operating under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) –

A programme aiming at a comprehensive compilation of information on the condition of forests in Europe and beyond

ICP Forests was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in response to wide public and political concern over extensive forest damage that had been observed in Europe in the beginning of the 1980s. ICP Forests monitors forest condition in Europe at two monitoring intensity levels: The Level I monitoring is based on around 6000 observation plots on a systematic transnational grid of 16 x 16 km throughout Europe and beyond to gain insight into the geographic and temporal variations in forest condition while the Level II intensive monitoring comprises around 500 plots in selected forest ecosystems with the aim to clarify cause-effect relationships. At present 42 countries participate in ICP Forests.

Comparison ICP Forests - EMEP deposition

This group discusses three studies that aim on comparing ICP Forests and EMEP deposition estimates with slightly different purposes. Since they all aim at comparisons between ICP Forests and EMEP we joined them in the same group.The objectives of the three studies are:Comparison of measured ICP Forests bulk and throughfall deposition with modelled EMEP (50 x 50 km grid model and if agreed also the 7 x 7 km grid) for the years 2009-11 (Lead: Aldo Marchetto)Comparison of temporal trend of EMEP…See More
