Description of Network
The International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests) was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (Air Convention, formerly CLRTAP) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

ICP Forests monitors forest condition at two monitoring intensity levels:

The Level I monitoring is based 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.
The Level II intensive monitoring has the aim to clarify cause-effect relationships in selected forest ecosystems.

At present 42 countries in Europe and beyond participate in ICP Forests.
This site gives in overview about ICP Forests sites registered in DEIMS.

The code in brackets following the site name consists of the ICP Forests "country code" and the "plot code". This combination can be used to link DEIMS site descriptions with the ICP Forests monitoring data.
