Current Projects

Observation-based system for monitoring and verification of greenhouse gases
1/2018 - 12/2021
contact: Martin Jung, Christoph Gerbig
Activities in VERIFY are targeted towards developing a pre-operational system to quantify greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O) across the EU based on independent observations in support of inventories that rely only on statistical data. It integrates atmospheric measurements, improved emission inventories, ecosystem data, and satellite observations to estimate anthropogenic and natural GHG emissions and sinks, including their attribution to processes and sectors. The projects outputs help to deliver policy-relevant information to track progress of the EU mitigation efforts to meet the targets of the Paris Agreement on Climate.

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
contact: Mathias Goeckede

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

Modelling the effect of silcon and calcium avaibility on the future sustainability of Arctic permafrost carbon pools on laboratory and field experiments
12/2018 - 11/2021
contact: Mathias Göckede

Prototype system for a Copernicus CO2 service
1/2021 - 12/2023
contact: Martin Jung
CoCO2 is a European project lead by ECMWF to build a monitoring and verification support capability for global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) related to human activities. The future anthropogenic CO2 emission monitoring and verification support capability will support action on climate change in line with the Paris Agreement. Key CoCO2 requirements are to distinguish emissions related to human activities from other sources of CO2 in the atmosphere; monitoring CO2 emissions from local to global scales; and providing uncertainty estimates.
