More Information (under review)

ABACUS field sites are based at Abisko, Sweden (with one focus area in dry tundra, the other in birch forest), and Kevo, Finland (with one focus on wetland, the other on birch forest).

The Abisko station (68°21'N,18°49'E) is about 200 km north of the Arctic Circle and ~385 m above sea level - the mountains reach 1991m.

The Kevo research station is situated on Lake Kevojärvi, in the north of Finnish Lapland. The site (69°45'N, 27°01'E; 80 m a.s.l.) lies about 60 km north of the continuous pine forest line and belongs to the sub-arctic forest-tundra zone.
