ICP Forests was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) due to the growing public awareness of possible adverse effects of air pollution on forests. ICP Forests monitors the forest condition in Europe, in cooperation with the European Union using two different monitoring intensity levels. The first grid (called Level I) is based on around 6000 observation plots on a systematic transnational grid of 16 x 16 km throughout Europe. The intensive monitoring level comprises around 800 Level II plots in selected forest ecosystems in Europe. Currently 40 countries participate in the ICP Forests. ... [Information of the supplier]
The International Cooperative Programme (ICP) on Modelling and Mapping of Critical Loads & Levels and Air Pollution Effects, Risks and Trends works under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). The objectives of the ICP Modelling and Mapping are to (a) determine receptor specific critical loads for indirect effects of the (long-term) deposition of various air pollutants, and critical levels for direct effects of gaseous air pollutants; (b) map pollutant depositions and concentrations which exceed critical thresholds. ...
