Utrecht University hosts InGOS International Conference about Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases

/ June 15, 2015/ Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry, IMAU

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 1st International Conference on Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases (InGOS) and how observations can help to mitigate climate change. The emissions of non–CO2 greenhouse gases (NCGHGs) such as CH4, N2O, SF6, H2 and halocarbons are very uncertain and it is as yet unknown how future climate changes will feedback into these emissions. Nevertheless, it is very likely that NCGHG atmospheric abundances will increase further in the future, making the emissions of these gases a critical target for climate change mitigation policies.

As a European Infrastructure Project, InGOS brings together international experts, is supporting and integrating the European capacity of non-CO2 greenhouse gas observations and aims to improve the existing observation systems. This provides insight into the concentration levels and European and extra-European emissions of NCGHGs. The data from the network enable better constraints on NCGHGs emissions within the EU and show whether emission reduction policies are effective.

InGOS addresses implications for technology, energy systems, policies, and society. It features the following keynote speakers:ingos

–      Susan Buckingham, Brunel University London
–      Ed Duglokencky, NOAA federal
–      Rik Wanninkhof
–      Torben Christensen, Lund University
–      Toshinobu Machida, Tohoku University

Deadline for registration is 30 June 2015.
