  Information - AS1.20 Satellite Remote-Sensing of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and Methane

Event Information
Significant uncertainties exist in our knowledge of the global carbon cycle, limiting the accuracy of future climate change forecasts and the ability to manage future levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane. Improved understanding of the spatiotemporal distribution of carbon sources and sinks and the associated biological and anthropogenic processes has been identified as a key requirement for reliable predications of our future climate and the ability for policymakers to make well informed decisions.
This session is open to contributions related to all aspects of remote sensing of the greenhouse gases CO2 and CH4 from current (e.g., SCIAMACHY, AIRS) and future space missions (e.g. OCO or GOSAT). We welcome studies on retrieval algorithms and data analysis, on the validation and interpretation of remotely-sensed greenhouse gas observations and modelling studies that use satellite data e.g. for the inversion of surface fluxes.
