Hello PCCers,

Just a reminder that there will be a public lecture by Professor Inez Fung
this Thursday, 7:30 PM in Kane 220, about the science of climate treaty
verification. Inez is visiting as part of the Atmospheric Science
Department's Graduate Student's Distinguished Visiting Lecture series.

In addition, Inez will be speaking tomorrow in JHN 075 at 3:30 PM (regular
ATM S seminar time, different location) on "Changing precipitation patterns
in the East Asian Summer Monsoon".

Hope to see you there!

*About the Lecture:*

The world’s nations are gathering to pledge targets for future greenhouse
gas emissions. How well can we determine whether a nation is meeting its
emission targets?

Gases are mixed rapidly, albeit incompletely, in the atmosphere. This rapid
mixing confounds the problem of climate treaty verification. I will review
the global carbon cycle, the activities that release CO2, and how the land
and oceans have absorbed about half the CO2 we have emitted into the

I will also review the Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of
climate treaty verification. A new satellite, the Orbital Carbon
Observatory 2, successfully launched on July 2 2014, delivers unprecedented
observations of CO2 variations in the atmosphere. I will present a
“top-down” approach for estimating carbon dioxide emissions from the
atmospheric CO2 variations. Satellite and in-situ CO2 observations
together with raw weather observations are assimilated into a global
carbon-climate model, so that surface sources and sinks of CO2 can be
inferred as required for mass conservation.

This public lecture is sponsored by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences
