Hello PCC-ers,

There is a public lecture coming up in Atmospheric Sciences that should be
of broad interest to the PCC community. Information below.

Hope to see many of you there!

Cheers,
Michael

*When:* Thursday, April 6, 2017, 7:30 pm

*Where:* Kane Hall, Room 220, University of Washington, Seattle Campus

*Cost:* The lecture is free and open to the public, but space is
limited so please RSVP.

*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
atmosphere.

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
