19th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (GGMT-2017)

The 19th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (GGMT-2017)
Dates: 27th – 31st August 2017
Location: Empa -  Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, Dübendorf, Switzerland

The 19th GGMT will be organised in Empa -  Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology in Dübendorf, Switzerland on 27th – 31st August 2017. GGMT is a meeting for the observations of key greenhouse gases and tracers, their isotopes, assessment of new techniques, standardization, quality assurance, and data products. The meeting scope covers challenges in the field of precise measurements of atmospheric greenhouse gases, data utilization and integrated products and observational network design.

GGMT provides an excellent platform for all scientists in the field to exchange the latest scientific findings and serves as a scientific backbone of the Global Atmosphere Watch Programme (GAW) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which has provided the umbrella to all GGMT meetings. Since 1997, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna joined WMO due to the increased use of carbon isotopes in studying the carbon cycle.

The GGMT-2017 conference will cover the following topics:

  • Quality Assurance, GHG Standards & Comparison Activities
  • Isotope Measurements
  • Measurement Techniques & Calibration
  • Emerging Techniques
  • Ocean Measurements
  • Urban Networks and Megacities
  • Site and Network Updates
  • Remote Sensing & Integration of Observations
  • Data Products and Policy
