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.

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.
