Annual NDACC-IRWG + TCCON Workshop
May 12 - May 16, 2014
The largest science meeting of the ground-based infrared atmospheric remote sensing community will take place in Bad Sulza from May 12-15. More than 85 specialists from 16 countries will discuss the latest developments in the Infrared Working Group (IRWG) of the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC) as well as the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON).
Both groups use high-resolution infrared measurements to measure atmospheric trace gases in the atmosphere from the ground up to an altitude of ~100 km. IRWG has been monitoring the atmospheric composition of many trace gases - especially ones that are related to the ozone layer - for more than 30 years. TCCON aims at very high precision measurements of greenhouse gases and has become the de facto reference for all current and future satellite greenhouse gas observing missions.
The meeting has been organized by the Atmospheric Remote Sensing Group of the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry (MPI-BGC), Jena.
