Last changed: 18 March 2022

The ICP IM database contains data on the variables in the ICP IM Monitoring manual.

The core dataset comprises 48 monitoring stations. The longest time series has data from 1979, while most other series date back to the second half of the 1990's.

Data management is carried out at the ICP IM Programme Centre at The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, in Uppsala, Sweden.

The following countries have continued data submission to the ICP IM database during the period 2016–2020: Austria, Belarus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, the Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

The number of sites with ongoing data submission for at least part of the data years 2015–2019 is 48 from fifteen countries. Sites from Canada, Latvia, and United Kingdom only contain older data.
