18th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (La Jolla, USA, September 13-17, 2015)
From 13 to 17 September 2015, the “18th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (GGMT-2015)” was held in La Jolla (San Diego), California (USA). The meeting was held by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (research macro-institution), which also hosted the first of these scientific meetings, that was held in 1975.
The purpose of these meetings is the high accurate measurement (using the WMO scales for these gases) of carbon dioxide, other greenhouse gases, their isotopes, and related tracers (CO, ratio between nitrogen and oxygen,…), new standardization techniques, quality assurance of the measurements, data products, and observational network design. In this edition of the meeting, there was also a session concerning the measurement of greenhouse gases dissolved in ocean water.
There were 165 attendees to this meeting coming from many institutions specialized in the measurement of atmospheric greenhouse gases, of many countries around the world. There were many scientific presentations: 42 talks and 70 posters (as well as 16 plenary speed talks to advertise the corresponding 16 posters).
The research that leads the greenhouse gases in situ measurement programme of the Izaña Atmospheric Observatory (which is a global station of the WMO GAW programme), of the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center (AEMET), Ángel Gómez Peláez, attended this meeting and presented a scientific poster (click here to download it) as well as a plenary speed talk to advertise the poster (click here to download it).
