Welcome to the website of the 12th International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space.
Venue: Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan
Abstract Submission Deadline
Workshop Agenda : Please Look at the Program.
Success in space-based global measurement of greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as carbon dioxide and methane, is critical for advancing the understanding of carbon cycle. Space-based GHG measurement, however, poses a wide array of challenges, many of which are complex and thus demand close international cooperation.
The goal of the workshop is to review the state of the art in remote sensing of CO2, CH4, and other greenhouse gases from space, including:
1) Results from the Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) and Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) missions and instruments, including SCIAMACHY, AIRS, MOPITT, TES, CrIS, and IASI
2) Pre-flight and on-orbit instrument calibration techniques
3) Greenhouse gas retrieval algorithms
4) Related information extraction such as solar induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF)
5) Validation methods, instrumentation, and results
6) Related ground-based, ship-borne, and air-borne measurements
7) Flux inversion from space based greenhouse gas measurements
8) Status of future greenhouse gas monitoring missions including TanSat, GOSAT-2, OCO-3, MERLIN, Sentinel-5p, Sentinel-5, MicroCarb, ASCENDS and so on.
The workshop is organized around a series of plenary oral presentations and other oral/poster sessions.
