2nd General Assembly of the "Integrated Greenhouse Gas Monitoring System for Germany (ITMS)"
The development of the BMBF-funded integrated greenhouse gas monitoring system for Germany, "Integriertes Treibhausgas-Monitoringsystem für Deutschland" (ITMS), will enable the operational monitoring of the sources and sinks of the three most important long-lived greenhouse gases CO2, CH4, N2O. To do so, the greenhouse gas monitoring system combines independent atmospheric concentration measurements with atmospheric transport models and available emission information.

How to find us: map, directions, and shuttle bus plan

Since December 2021, the BMBF has been funding research projects concerning core components of this monitoring system, specifically:

  • Atmospheric Modelling
  • Atmospheric Observations
  • Modelling of Sources and Sinks

This 2nd General Assembly brings together all funded partners of the collaborative ITMS research project to discuss its recent progress. The main objectives of this meeting are:

  1. To discuss scientific findings, cooperation, and exchange based on presentations from the funded partners regarding their contributions
  2. To analyze and enhance synergies between existing and planned national and international research programs
  3. To share information about the project's benchmarking, planning, and communication

Besides the partners already involved, the invitation to this general assembly is also aimed at anyone interested in contributing to and using ITMS results.

The ITMS Coordination Group is looking forward to meeting you at the 2nd ITMS General Assembly at the FTU Aula, KIT Campus Nord in Karlsruhe.
