Subsite A: Mire Mycklemossen

Figure 1 (right). Mycklemossen in relation to the other mire stations within SITES.

The aim of the site is to promote biogeochemical/physiology mire ecosystem studies in relation to global change, process modelling and remote sensing. The site is also an important part of the Skogaryd catchment concept, which combines terrestrial, stream and lake ecosystems at a landscape level.

At the mire site land-atmosphere, stream chemistry and stream-atmosphere studies are ongoing. It is one of few mire sites where one can determine the Net Ecosystem Carbon Balance (NECB). The site has electric power, fiber optic internet connection, boardwalks, and equipment according to ICOS –EU. Mycklemossen is a hemi-boreal mire with larger N-deposition that the other SITES-Mires: Abisko – Degerö (Figure 1) and the microforms as well as main wind direction at the site is shown in Figure 2.
