MEMO2 kick-off, Utrecht, The Netherlands

Our Eurpean Training Network (MSCA-ETN) Methane goes Mobile - Measurements and Modelling (MEMO2) consortium just met for the kickoff of the project! Although just started, first collaborations, campaign plans and preliminary results are already in full swing. Now we are hunting for 13 motivated PhD students that want to join the chase for CH4 from local to European scale.

2nd ICOS science conference Helsinki

This year’s conference will address some of the key topics in the greenhouse gases and biogeochemical cycles research including:

  • From local to global scales: Relevance of regions and hotspots on greenhouse gas cycles
  • Long time series, experiments and modelling
  • New development in observation techniques and new scientific questions
  • After COP21: Challenges towards globally integrated observations and independent evaluation

The conference is open for all scientists interested in research on greenhouse gases, biogeochemical cycles and climate change.

EGU 2016, Vienna, Austria

More on the urban environment at EGU 2016 here.


Convener: Michiel van der Molen
Co-Conveners: Ulrike Dusek , Dominik Brunner, Felix Vogel, Roderic L. Jones

In cities the emissions from traffic, industries, home heating and energy production accumulate to produce hotspots of population exposure to poor air quality. Air pollution impacts are episodic and often co-occur with heat waves and allergenic pollen release. Urban air quality and the effect of policy measures are challenging to monitor with traditional fixed stations or with models, because of the extreme variability in the cities’ geometry and emission patterns. 
This session intends to bring together researchers of urban air quality and will accept submissions of all topics related to urban air quality, heat stress, and air pollution impacts including health. The presentations focus on new developments in the field of ground and satellite observations, process modelling, data merging and downscaling related to urban air quality. Topics include sensor networks, personal monitoring, observations from space and UAV’s, high spatial and temporal resolution model approaches, downscaling, source apportionment, community and personal exposure quantification and air pollution effects. Air pollution species may include anthropogenic and biogenic ones, including greenhouse gases and allergenic pollen, their isotopes and concentration ratios.

SOFIE spring school (PKU and LSCE)

The Sino-French Institute for Earth System Science SOFIE will hold its 2016 spring school in Toulouse, France with many participants from LSCE and the Beijing University (PKU)

The primary objective of SOFIE in its first phase of development will be the study of feedbacks between the carbon cycle, atmospheric composition and climate, regional and global scales. The methods used are based on numerical and empirical models as well as the analysis of different Earth observation datasets. More than 80 rank A publications have been published jointly since 2009, including 10 in the prestigious journals: Nature, Science and PNAS.

A detailed program will be published here.
