Current Projects

CO2 Human Emissions
10/2017 - 12/2020
contact: Julia Marshall, Martin Jung
The CO2 Human Emissions (CHE) project is a new initiative to explore the development of a European system to monitor human activity related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions accross the world.

Observation-based system for monitoring and verification of greenhouse gases
1/2018 - 12/2021
contact: Martin Jung, Christoph Gerbig
VERIFY develops a system to estimate greenhouse gas emissions to support countries' emission reporting to the UN Climate Change Convention Secretariat. The emissions are estimated based on land, ocean and atmospheric observations. The project focuses on the three major greenhouse gases responsible for global warming: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O).

Coordinated Research in Earth Systems and Climate: Experiments, Knowledge, Dissemination and Outreach
11/2015 - 10/2020
contact: Sönke Zaehle
The CRESCENDO project aims to facilitate a coordinated European contribution to the CMIP6 experiment where the climate change community compares different international climate models to improve our knowledge of the Earth’s climate processes and provide the best possible future climate projections to governments and decision-makers Earth system models are increasingly the primary tools used for estimating the full Earth system response to future emissions of greenhouse gases. Hence it is crucial these models are continually improved in order that more reliable future climate projections can be made.

Permafrost thaw and the changing arctic coast: science for socio-economic adaptation
11/2017 - 10/2022
contact: Mathias Göckede

Integrated Arctic Observation System
12/2016 - 11/2021

Inverse modeling of GHG fluxes using the CarboScope regional inversion system
4/2012 - 12/2025
contact: Christoph Gerbig

Kohlenstoffumsatz und Treibhausgasfreisetzung aus tauendem Permafrost Nordostsibiriens unter sich ändernden Umwelt- und Klimabedingungen, Vorhaben: Projektionen der Auswirkung von sibirischen degradierendem Permafrost (TP2)
6/2017 - 5/2020
contact: Mathias Goeckede
