ACTRIS Sweden sites

Currently operating ACTRIS Sweden sites

Starting 2017, the two ACTRIS sites in Sweden (Vavihill and Aspvreten, see below) moved their ACTRIS operations to co-locate with ICOS Sweden at Hyltemossa and Norunda. All ACTRIS data are reported to the EBAS database, where it is freely accessible.

Hyltemossa (location: 56° 5' 52" N, 13°25' 8" E, 115 m asl, southern Sweden, 18.5 km ENE of previous ACTRIS site Vavihill)

Norunda (60°05′N, 17°29′E, 46 m asl) is located about 30 km north of Uppsala in the southern part of the boreal forest zone.

ACTRIS activities are also performed by Stockholm University, an ACTRIS Sweden partner, at the 

Zeppelin Mountain research station, Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard (location: 78°54' N, 11°53' E, 475 m asl, west coast of Svalbard).

Future ACTRIS Sweden sites

ACTRIS Sweden is currently setting up activities at additional ICOS Sweden sites. 

Svartberget (64°15′N, 19°46′E, 270 m asl) is located about 60 km west of Umeå. Svartberget is also part of the SITES national research infrastructure.

Östergarnsholm (57.43010 N, 18.98415 E) is located on the small island of Östergarnsholm about 4 km from the eastern coast of Gotland on the Baltic Sea.

A description of these and other potential ACTRIS Sweden sites are found in the drop menu.

Previous ACTRIS Sweden sites

Until 2017, the two sites in Sweden that carry out ACTRIS observations are Vavihill in southern Sweden and Aspvreten south of Stockholm. Both are part of the EMEP station network and report data to the EBAS database, where it is freely accessible.

Vavihill (56° 01´N, 13° 09´ E, 172 m asl, start of aerosol observations in 1999, closed 2017)

Aspvreten (58° 48´ N, 17° 23´E, 30 m asl, operated since 1984, closed 2017)
