Atmospheric CO2 and CH4 Budgets to Support the Global Stocktake

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 (All day) to Wednesday, May 25, 2022 (All day)
ARSET- Online Training

This free three-part webinar series will introduce bottom-up and top-down methods for tracking emissions and removals of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from the atmosphere. This training will explore how to combine this information to produce a more complete and transparent global stocktake, and support efforts to reduce net emissions and mitigate their impact on the climate.

Demonstrations will be provided on how top-down atmospheric budgets of CO2 and CH4 can be derived from atmospheric measurements and inverse models to produce a transparent description of their emissions and removals. Participants will also be introduced to pilot products and how information contained in these top-down atmospheric products can supplement bottom-up inventory products to assess the accuracy and completeness of emissions reports on regional, national, and local scales.

The course will be held in three consecutive Wednesdays, May 11, 18, & 25, 2022.There will be identical 2 hours sessions at two different times of the day, 10:00-12:00 or 15:00-17:00 EDT (UTC-4). Participants need only to register and attend one daily session.
