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.

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.
