Atmospheric CO2 and CH4 Budgets to Support the Global Stocktake: Open, Online NASA ARSET Climate Training Invitation

Atmospheric CO2 and CH4 Budgets to Support the Global Stocktake (Introductory)

This 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.

Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal:
Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Target 13.2: Integrate climate change measures into national policies, strategies and planning

Course Dates: May 11, 18, and 25, 2022

Times: 10:00-12:00 or 15:00-17:00 EDT (UTC-4); There will be identical sessions at two different times of the day. Participants need only to register for and attend one session each day of the training.

Learning Objectives: By the end of this series, attendees will be able to:
-Recognize the need to monitor CO2, CH4, and other greenhouse gases to support efforts to reduce net emissions and mitigate their impact on climate
-Describe how top-down CO2 and CH4 budgets can be derived using atmospheric measurements and inverse models
-Relate how the products and methods described can be combined with bottom-up inventories to identify opportunities for improving GHG inventories to support future GSTs

Audience: This webinar series is intended for stakeholders at local, regional, and national levels who are interested in managing greenhouse gas emissions to meet the climate change mitigation goals of the Paris Agreement, national inventory developers, and researchers who are interested in developing top-down atmospheric greenhouse gas budgets and working with the inventory development and assessment communities to support the global stocktake process.

Course Format: Three 2-hour parts
