Cutting-edge Satellite Monitoring and Scientific Knowledge to contribute to the Paris Agreement: Focusing on the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories
The effect of Greenhouse Gas on global warming has been obvious and widely recognized. IPCC will refine ‘2006 Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories’ in 2019. While the current guidelines recognize the importance of independent data for a comparison check with the inventory based on national activity data, the limitation of satellite observation was pointed out in terms of spatial (vertical and horizontal) and temporal resolution. On another front, satellite characteristics which are effective for global and continuing Earth observation are expected to contribute to improve GHG inventories.
In addition to the contribution to GHG inventories, this event will highlight the latest scientific knowledge which is the outcome of “Integrated Research Program for Advancing Climate Models (TOUGOU)”.This program was launched by the Ministry of Education, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan this year to support the 6th Assessment Report/WG1 and in consideration of the Global Stocktake under the Paris Agreement.
In this event, the participants will recognize the progress and status of satellite GHG monitoring technology which contribute to developing national GHG inventories. Remaining issues will be identified and discussed for satellite data to be effective in verifying GHG inventories and the 6th Assessment Report.
