|10th anniversary International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC)
21-25 August 2017, Interlaken, Switzerland
The purpose of this conference is to bring together scientists from
different disciplines to work towards an integrated view on the global
cycle of carbon in the Earth System. Spatial scales considered range
from local and regional towards global synthesis, temporal scales from
hours to millennia. Periods addressed include the contemporary,
industrial, and future, as well as the last millennia,
glacial/interglacial, and stadial/interstadial periods.
Organized by the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research
|19th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (GGMT-2017)
27-31 August 2017, Dübendorf, Switzerland
GGMT is the cornerstone meeting for the observation of key greenhouse gases
GHG) and tracers, their isotopes, assessment of new techniques, standardization,
quality assurance, and data products. The scope covers challenges in the
field of precise measurements of atmospheric greenhouse gases, data utilization
and integrated products and observational network design. It provides an
excellent platform for all scientists in this field to exchange the latest
scientific findings and serves as the scientific backbone of the Global
Atmosphere Watch Programme (GAW) of the World Meteorological Organization
(WMO), which has provided the umbrella to all GGMT meetings.
Organized by Empa, WMO and IAEA
|Where are the greatest uncertainties in the global terrestrial Carbon Budgets?
(Joint session iLEAP-Global Carbon Project, In 5th iLEAPS Science Conference)
Session D4, currently scheduled for 14 September in draft programme schedule,
Land ecosystems absorb around one quarter of anthropogenic CO2
emission each year, and thus act to mitigate climate change. However these
CO2 "sinks" are modulated by climate change and variability. The
response of land ecosystems to changing
climate and atmospheric composition is arguably the most uncertain component of
the global carbon cycle, and thus the land carbon sink is often derived as the
residual from the other components (fossil and land-use emissions minus ocean sink
minus atmospheric growth rate). Determining the land carbon sink locations, their
variation through time, and attribution to underlying processes still remains a
challenge. In this session we welcome both modelling and empirical studies that aim
to either quantify, attribute or reduce uncertainties in the terrestrial carbon
cycle across major global biomes. Studies are also welcome that present uncertainty
reduction in expected future land-atmosphere CO2 exchange in terms of
"permissible emissions" to achieve global warming stabilisation targets.
