Abstract: The Air and Climate Unit of the Institute for Environment and Sustainability is developing a forest flux station on the JRC Ispra site and in 2012 this project has advanced significantly. After the erection of a 36 m high self-standing tower in November 2011, the infrastructure, notably electricity, IT services and air conditioning in the adjacent container have been set up. Thereafter, the installation and testing of scientific instrumentation both on the tower and at the ground has started in view of the two projects the station participates in, i.e. the ESFRI initiative ICOS (International Carbon Observation System) and the FP7 project ECLAIRE (Effects of Climate Change on Air Pollution and Response Strategies for European Ecosystems). Measurements have started in late spring and are going on very well. The timelines of data look generally very good with few missing data points due to instrument failure or maintenance. The equipping of the station to comply with ICOS ES Level 2 requirements is proceeding well and should be finalized in 2013.
