Welcome to the registration page for the two 'GEO & Carbon cycle' related events:


a) International Conference "Towards a Global Carbon Observing System: Progresses and Challenges" (1-2 October 2013, Geneva)

b) GEO CL-02 Task meeting "Global Carbon Observation and Analysis" (3-4 October 2013, Geneva)

The Conference is open to the global community working on carbon cycle monitoring, from scientists and data providers to potential users and stakeholders. The aim is to present recent results and achievements in observing and modeling C-cycle and GHG, at any level: research, monitoring, methodology, policy, infrastructure, etc. The final aim is to gather elements useful for the design of a global carbon cycle observing system and to produce a list of recommendations dedicated to policy makers and that should be distributed at the next GEO Ministerial Summit (January 2014).


- Tropical C-budget and hotspots

- Observations from space

- In situ observations

- Global methane cycle

- Model data fusion at global and regional scale

- Carbon and policy


The meeting of the GEO Task CL-02 "Global Carbon Cycle Observation and Analysis" will be the occasion to revamp the work of the CL-02 contributors and welcome new contributors. Everyone will have the opportunity to present his/her activities and main achieved and/or expected results, relevant to global carbon observation and analysis. It will be discussed: How to improve coordination; Roles; Possible collaborations; Planning next activities; Establish the GEO Carbon Community of Practice; Elements needed for the design of an operational global carbon cycle observing system. At the end the meeting the list of recommendations dedicated to policy makers (to be distributed at the GEO Ministerial Summit) shall be finalized.
