Workshop - Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space (IWGGMS-10)

The 10th International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space (IWGGMS-10) will take place on May 5 - 7, 2014, in the Netherlands.

This workshop will mark the 10th anniversary of the annually organized International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space (IWGGMS). Since the first workshop, this event has been steadily growing and now attracts around 150 participants.

The goal of this workshop is to assess the latest science and technologies of greenhouse gas (GHG) measurements from space. The workshop will address new scientific findings obtained from current and past satellite missions (ENVISAT SCIAMACHY, Aqua AIRS, MeteoSat IASI, GOSAT TANSO-FTS, and Aura TES), as well as the concepts of future satellite missions that are near launch or in preparation (OCO-2, Sentinel-5 precursor, TanSat, OCO-3, MERLIN, GOSAT-2, MicroCarb, Sentinel-5, CarbonSat, ASCENDS, etc.).

The following GHG research topics will be covered in the workshop: satellite missions, retrieval algorithms, data analysis, inverse modelling, ground-based & airborne measurements for validation, mission concepts, and instrument calibration.
