Working group to study greenhouse gases

Project team form an International Space Science Institute (ISSI) Working Group to study greenhouse gases

Members of the ESA OceanFlux Greenhouse Gases Evolution team have been successful in forming an international working group to help support international efforts to study and monitor atmosphere-ocean gas exchange and fluxes.  

This group brings together international researchers working in the field of atmosphere-ocean interaction and satellite Earth observation to identify new multi-satellite, model and in situ data synergies towards improving our understanding of the pathways, sources, sinks and budgets of greenhouse gases. They will also aim to identify a roadmap for routine long-term space-asset-based monitoring of the oceanic sink of carbon dioxide.  This work will help to identify ways in which we can use satellites and space assets to help monitor the health of our oceans, and the team aim to use this work to help support the development of the Integrated Carbon Observing System and future Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports.
