LTH AEROSOLS seminar: ICOS Cities Infrastructure
Many cities around the world have set ambitious emission reduction targets and are developing climate action plans. To properly follow-up on the mitigation effects a reliable monitoring and verification system is needed.
Claudio D'onofrio from the Dept of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science at Lund University will hold a seminar about the ICOS Cities Infrastructure.
ICOS, the Integrated Carbon Observation System, is a well-established and fully operational European Research Infrastructure. ICOS produces standardised data on greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, as well as carbon fluxes between the atmosphere, the earth and oceans. However, most emissions (> 50%) are produced in cities where no standardised measurements are available. ICOS Cities is a pilot application with the goal to increase our knowledge and understanding of urban emissions and how to monitor and measure greenhouse gases in an urban landscape.We will introduce the project and give a quick overview of the project, our approach and methods, and what has been achieved so far. Further we will highlight collaboration efforts geared towards an inclusive approach to the city stakeholders as well as having a look at other projects to help cities to reach their climate action plans.
Claudio D’Onofrio is a data scientist at the ICOS Carbon Portal, department of Physical Geography & Ecosystem Science (INES) at Lund University. He is working on data life cycles, data FAIRness, and provenance for data and metadata and is currently managing the ICOS Cities (PAUL) project.
No registration is needed. Welcome to join!
