|13-14 March 2008, IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria|
|Methane hydrates are an energy source of potentially staggering
magnitude compared with other known hydrocarbon deposits. It
is found in deposits in Polar Regions and in costal shelves
around the world. Both global warming and the decision to extract
them (if it becomes economically feasible) could open a large
new source of carbon to the atmosphere over the next century
with its associated impacts to climate change. The workshop
will explore the risks for large releases over this century
based on present trends in global warming, technological development,
and energy economics.

2nd International Workshop on Uncertainty in Greenhouse Gas Inventories
- 27–28th September 2007, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Laxenburg, Austria
- Methods for the proper accounting of human-induced GHG sources and sinks at national scales have been stipulated by institutions such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and many countries have been producing national assessments for well over a decade. As increasing international concern and cooperation aim at policy-oriented solutions to the climate change problem, however, a number of issues have begun to arise regarding verification and compliance under both proposed and legislated schemes meant to reduce the human-induced global climate impact. This workshop, jointly organized by the Austrian-based International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis and the Systems Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, brings together international experts to address relevant uncertainty issues underlying the assessment of greenhouse gases.

Impacts of Land Cover Change on Ecosystem Carbon and Water Cycling
- AGU Joint assembly (B03 Session)
- 22-25 May 2007, Acapulco, Mexico
- We invite contributions from experimental, remote sensing and modeling studies that attempt to quantify impacts of land use change on carbon and water cycling. Some relevant questions include the following: What are the ecological and functional changes in the water balance as a result of grass to woody plant conversion (and vice-versa), and how might these changes alter carbon and nutrient cycling? How do land cover changes affect evapotranspiration pathways? How does a change in ecosystem functional types impact carbon stores, and how might this alter soil nutrient cycling and trace gases? We hope that these studies will bridge disciplinary understanding by examining the linkages between hydrology and ecology.

Summer ASLO meeting, Carbon and carbonate fluxes in the coastal ocean: a tribute to Roland Wollast
- 19-24 June 2005, Santiago de Compostela, Spain
- The role of the coastal ocean in the global carbon and carbonate cycles is disproportionately high considering its relavilvely small surface area (7% of the surface of the ocean). For example, it contributes 15-30% of the oceanic primary production and about 50% of the marine calcification. The aim of this session is to examine the factors explaining such high rates of activity and update the knowledge of global processes and fluxes involving carbon cycling in the coastal ocean, such as primary production, respiration, calcification/dissolution, air-sea CO2 fluxes, inputs from land, and phosphorus cycles. Presentations based on process studies, modeling and data synthesis are welcome. This session is a tribute to the late Professor Roland Wollast who was one of the leading scientists recognizing the critical importance of the coastal ocean in the global biogeochemical cycles.

- 5-6 May 2005, Graz, Austria
- The focus of the workshop is on the objectives of LULUCF
activities - how LULUCF could be included in an international
climate framework in order to move towards achieving these
objectives, and an evaluation of the options. The objectives
of the workshop are to:
- Assess and discuss the benefits and difficulties of LULUCF within the Kyoto Protocol;
- Discuss the objectives for LULUCF within a post-2012 international climate change agreement;
- Discuss improvements to the current modalities, new activities for inclusion within a post-2012 international climate change agreement; and alternative architectures for consideration of LULUCF;
- Document and evaluate the options identified.
