Outline • Why GEOCARBON? • Short history (just 1 slide!) of “EU-Carbon” Project • Link between GEOCARBON and GEO • GEOCARBON overview + some first result
The Global Carbon Cycle What’s missing?
The Global Carbon Cycle coordination needed for global integration
The EU contribution to a global GEO carbon observing system past Ø FP 5/FP 6, CARBOEUROPE cluster, Carbo. Africa, Carbo. Ocean, others: Experience put in place and/or enhance the EU carbon monitoring system; improved knowledge of the European (and African) C-cycle. Ø FP 7, COCOS: coordinated European and global carbon relevant Strategy initiatives; defined the GEO C-Strategy. Ø FP 7, ICOS: set up the infrastructure for a integrated and standardized Infrastructure monitoring of C-cycle at global level, starting from Europe. Present Ø FP 7, GEOCARBON: global coordination toward the design and Coordination development of an Operational Global Integrated Carbon Observation and Analysis System (built on EU projects’ experience). Future Ø ? Operation (beyond research projects) Priority: sustain operational infrastructures for earth observation (particularly in situ)
GEOCARBON European Commission (EC) / Seventh Framework Programme (FP 7) Starting date: 01/10/2011 Duration: 36 months Total funds: 8. 6 M€ (6. 6 M€ from EC) Project Coordinator: Prof. Riccardo Valentini Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change CMCC, Italy European project but global contribution! To develop a coordinated Global Carbon Observation and Analysis System, supporting the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) toward building a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) for carbon (last 3 years of the GEO WP).
& Conceived in response to a FP 7 call for proposals to support one EU project specifically contributing to GEO at global level in the area of C-cycle. Shaped around the GEO Work Plan + task CL-02, ‘Global Carbon Observations and Analysis’, to meet the “carbon side of the GEO 2015 Target on Climate: - better understanding of the global carbon cycle - development and facilitation of a comprehensive (atmosphere, ocean, land) global carbon observation and analysis system in support of monitoring based decision-making and related environmental treaty obligations. Activities embedded in the task CL-02 and coordinated with the GEO Secretariat and GEO global community monitoring C-cycle. Different from previous EC “Carbon” projects: not just independent research but a contribution to GEO!
GEO Task CL-02 GEOCARBON linkages to GEO – Analysis Task CL-02, Global Carbon Observation andin practice: Antonio Bombelli (Task • Coordinator & Po. C) work aligned to the GEO Work Plan • regular update of the GEO Work Plan (2012 -2015) Leading partners (open and volunteer partnership): • update the GEO task sheet on carbon (task CL-02) Australia (CSIRO), EC (GEOCARBON), France (LSCE), Italy (CMCC, University of Tuscia), • update the GEO C-strategy Japan (AIST, JAXA), Netherlands (University of Amsterdam), Norway (Bergen), UK • participate in relevant GEO meetings (University of Sheffield), USA (NASA, NOAA, USDA, USGS), CEOS, GTOS, WMO (GAW) • involve (and collaborate with) the global GEO community on C-cycle Planned activities • Improve information and products, Outreach, Carbon Portal • Improve global observation networks measuring carbon pools and fluxes, considering both CO 2 and CH 4 • Improve (resolution and accuracy) carbon budgets at different scales • Develop an integrated Carbon Cycle Data Assimilation System (CCDAS) ingesting data from multiple data sources at different scale • Validate space-based GHG observations and consolidate data requirements for the next-generation GHG monitoring missions
