  Information - AS3.14 Advances in Carbon Cycle Atmospheric Observing Systems, Measurement Technology, and Inverse Modeling

Event Information
Carbon Cycle Atmospheric Observing system networks are being built in Europe and North America. In addition, a variety of new sensors and methodologies are being developed to enhance existing observing networks. Technologies either included in the current network expansion or being discussed for future observing systems include flask sampling, airborne profiling, low-cost, abundant in situ sensors, continuous sensors, and tall tower networks, and satellite and ground-based remote sensing. This session will report on the progress of the current network expansions and the status of the inverse meteorological transport models which will be used with the network data to determine carbon dioxide and methane sources and sinks. This session also invites presentations related to future observational technology including discussions of new measurement systems, the implications of these emerging technologies for carbon cycle science, and evaluations of the gap between existing technologies and needs. Presentations dealing with atmospheric constituents relevant to the carbon cycle, for example O2 or del-13C, are also welcome.
