10th anniversary International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC)

21-25 August 2017, Interlaken, Switzerland
Organized by the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research

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.

19th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (GGMT-2017)

27-31 August 2017, Dübendorf, Switzerland
Organized by Empa, WMO and IAEA

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.

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,
iLEAPS Science Conference 11-14 September 2017, Oxford, UK

Organised by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology of the Natural Environment Research Council.

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.
