TERENO-NEON Carbon Workshop

13-20 July 2019, Dren, Germany

This 2019 Carbon summer workshop will provide an opportunity to learn how to use 'big data' from the Terrestrial Environmental Observatories (TERENO), National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) and Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS) large networks of observatories while discussing an understanding of atmospheric, ecosystem, and below ground carbon processes, and the associated means to estimate CO2 and its role in the climate system. This Carbon summer workshop will also help develop the skills to access and use data in practice from a diversity of sources, including different networks. We will have a strong practical component that focuses on the data use. Both the scientific understanding and the data use will be brought together in group exercises.

Urban Data Workshop

26-28 June 2019, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Organized Global Carbon Project and Sustainable Healthy Cities.

The objective of this workshop is to assemble a core group of researchers and datasets that will contribute to developing a global dataset on urban area energy use in ways that add up and align with national totals. We call this method a Bot-Top approach because it combines as much bottom-up available data with top-down estimates. The method builds upon prior work that tested the methodology in China and is presently being tested in India and the USA. We want to expand from these three countries to include additional countries in Asia [e.g., Japan, Thailand, etc.], EU, Australia, and Africa [e.g., Kenya, South Africa, etc.].

Draft Agenda.

8th International symposium on non-CO2 greenhouse gases (NCGG8)

12-14 June 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Organized by VVM.

Non-CO2 greenhouse gases include many substances, such as methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), fluorocarbons (CFCs, HFCs, SF6, etc), black carbon, aerosols, and tropospheric ozone (O3). These contribute significantly to climate forcing. Reducing non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions is often more cost-effective than reducing CO2 emissions.

The scope of NCGG8 will be global challenges, and local solutions. The NCGG conferences pay attention to:

  • sources, sinks, and atmospheric processes of non-CO2 greenhouse gases;
  • mitigation options and emission reduction technologies and practices;
  • policies and measures, both in the public and private sectors; and
  • the science-policy-industry interface

We will invite submission of papers with respect to four themes, covering causes, effects and solutions of the environmental problems associated with non-CO2 greenhouse gases. These papers may report on science (from natural, social, technological or integrated sciences) and policy.

Wetland fluxnet synthesis for methane

13-16 May 2019, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

Wetlands provide many important ecosystem services, including wildlife habitat, water purification, flood protection, and carbon metabolism. Our ability to manage these services and predict the long-term health of wetlands is strongly linked to their carbon fluxes, of which methane (CH4) is a key component. Natural wetlands emit approximately 30% of global CH4 emissions, as their waterlogged soils create ideal conditions for CH4 production. They are also the largest, and potentially most uncertain, natural source of CH4 to the atmosphere.

To understand and predict CH4 fluxes across wetlands globally, we propose the first synthesis of CH4 flux tower data accompanying a global database of CH4 emissions.

First All-RECCAP2 Workshop

18-21 March 2019, Gotemba (at the foothill of Mount Fuji), Japan

The workshop will gather scientists with expertise on regional and global budgets of GHGs (CO2, CH4, N2O), including atmospheric inversions, vegetation, soils and ocean models, existing and emerging observations, data mining and synthesis, from different regions of the globe. The main goal will be the planning to deliver (and explore the feasibility for regular updates) of regional assessment of GHG budgets based on scientific evidence, considering uncertainties, understanding of drivers, and retrospective analysis of recent trends. Additionally, key global assessments will be developed for their own value and in support to the regional GHG budgets. See one-page Justification and Objectives of RECCAP2.

This meeting is supported by the National Institute for Environmental Studies (which will cover your accommodation, local transport and food in Japan), the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Global Carbon Project. We hope you will be able to cover your airfare, but we do have a limited budget to support some airfares which will be allocated on the basis of the most needed. Our Japanese hosts are Nobuko Saigusa from NIES and Prabir Patra from JAMSTEC.

OCB Workshop on Oceanic Methane and Nitrous Oxide:
The present situation and future scenarios

28-31 October 2018, Lake Arrowhead, California, USA
Organized by the Ocean Carbon Biogeochemistry (OCB) program.

A three day workshop on oceanic methane and nitrous oxide covering chemical analysis, microbial metabolism, and our observational and predictive capabilities

Where in the global oceans should spatial and temporal surveys be conducted to discern climatologically-relevant changes in water-column inventories of methane and nitrous oxide?

This is an important question facing oceanographers today. However, attempts to answer this question stimulate many related and relevant queries concerning the production and consumption of methane and nitrous oxide in the ocean. For example, how will their water-column concentrations be influenced by factors such as increasing seawater temperatures, decreasing oxygen concentrations, and changing nutrient loading? Do we have sufficient analytical and observational capacity to conduct robust temporal surveys? Do we sufficiently comprehend the microbial metabolic pathways that produce and consume these two trace gases?

This workshop will address these questions to help determine the future directions of methane and nitrous oxide measurements in the global oceans.

3rd International Greenhouse Gas Workshop

22-25 October 2018, Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology (NUIST), Nanjing, China
Organized by Zhiqiu Gao, Yongguang Zhang, Meng Huang, and Frank Griessbaum.

Greenhouse gas (GHG) flux measurements are key to understanding the drivers of global climate change, the short and long-term consequences of ecosystem and agrosystem management, and related changes on multiple scales. Such information contributes to the identification and prediction of physical and physiological processes underlying ongoing and future environmental changes and helps influence important decisions on their mitigation, and related local and global policies.

Although GHG flux measurements are conducted on a variety of scales, from a single leaf to a large region, many research projects are typically focused on one single scale, while actual physical and physiological processes are happening over a continuum of multiple scales.

One of the major challenges associated with measuring and modelling over such a continuum is the transferability between measurement scales ranging from leaf and soil chamber, greenhouse based imaging, field towers and UAVs, to aircraft and satellites. This workshop is designed to bridge research efforts and measurement techniques at all scales into more vertically integrated approaches.

Novel measurement techniques and innovative technologies are leading to new scientific findings in this area, by allowing researchers to approach their investigations in new ways. This workshop's speakers are among the leaders in their scientific disciplines, who will share their latest results with the community.

In addition to the keynote lectures covering the above-mentioned topics, there will be demonstrations of new instrumentation and measurement techniques. A poster session will continue throughout the workshop, and all attendees are encouraged to contribute.

International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions 2018

22-24 May 2018, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
Organized by Chalmers with support from Global Carbon Project and International Energy Agency, i.e. IEAGHG, IEAIETS and IEA Bioenergy.

The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2°C, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C. The IPCC Fifth Assessment Report quantified the global "carbon budget", that is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still having a likely chance of limiting global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

The exact size of the carbon budget cannot be specified with high confidence since it depends on many uncertain factors, including emission pathways for non-CO2 climate forcers. This said, the remaining budgets for the 1.5°C and 2°C targets have been estimated at about 200 and 800 Gt of CO2 . With unchanged present emissions at about 40 Gt CO2/year these budgets would be exhausted in as few as 5 and 20 years, respectively. Consequently, most of the IPCC emission scenarios able to meet the global two-degree target require overshooting the carbon budget at first and then remove the excess carbon with large negative emissions, typically on the order of 400-800 Gt CO2 up to 2100.

At the same time as negative emissions appear to be indispensable to meet climate targets decided, the large future negative emissions assumed in climate models have been questioned and warnings have been raised about relying on very large and uncertain negative emissions in the future. With the future climate at stake, a deeper and fuller understanding of the various aspects of negative emissions is needed.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, in order to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include various negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives.

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.

12th AsiaFlux International Workshop

18-23 August 2014, Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines
For the last 15 years, the AsiaFlux community has been working hard together to bring key ecosystems under observation to ensure sustainability and quality of life in Asia. The terms such as 'monitoring' and 'under observation' go beyond just measurements and include synthesizing the observations to potential narratives and providing feedbacks, which serve as the source of the community learning toward sustainability. In Asia, we are barely any closer to a more sustainable community and there is an urgent need to improve the awareness and effectiveness of our efforts as scientists towards sustainability. We eagerly expect and hope that our theme – "Bridging Atmospheric Flux Monitoring to National and International Climate Change Initiatives" will guide us to the ways toward improving our service towards sustainable future.

Air-sea gas flux climatology: Progress and Future Prospects

24-27 September 2013, Brest, France
In 2010 the European Space Agency and the international SOLAS community came together to support a new initiative towards further exploiting satellite Earth observation data to support and enhance SOLAS science.
From this collaboration the OceanFlux series of projects were funded; three projects, one studying aerosols, one studying upwelling systems and one focussing on improving the quantification of air-sea exchange of greenhouse gases.
The latter, called OceanFlux Greenhouse Gases is now in its final year and we are organising an international workshop to present results from all of the OceanFlux projects, for international groups to present their recent research and to plan for future collaborations and challenges.

Global Carbon Project Carbon Neutral Event Vulnerability and Opportunity of Methane Hydrates Workshop
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.

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.
