GGMT-2017 will be held on 27 – 31 August 2017 at Empa in Dübendorf, Switzerland.

GGMT-2017 will be held back-to-back with the 10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10), Interlaken, Switzerland.

GGMT-2017 is the 19th meeting in a series, which was initiated by Dr. Dave Keeling at La Jolla, California in 1975. Today, GGMT is the cornerstone meeting for the observation of key greenhouse gases and tracers, their isotopes, assessment of new techniques, standardization, quality assurance, and data products. The scope covers challenges in the field of precise measurements of atmospheric greenhouse gases, data utilization and integrated products and observational network design. It provides an excellent platform for all scientists in this field  to exchange the latest scientific findings and serves as the scientific backbone of the Global Atmosphere Watch Programme (GAW) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which has provided the umbrella to all GGMT meetings. Since 1997 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna joined WMO due to the increased use of carbon isotopes in studying the carbon cycle.

The GGMT-2017 conference will cover the following topics:

  • Quality Assurance, GHG Standards & Comparison Activities
  • Isotope Measurements
  • Measurement Techniques & Calibration
  • Emerging Techniques
  • Ocean Measurements
  • Urban Networks and Megacities
  • Site and Network Updates
  • Remote Sensing & Integration of Observations
  • Data Products and Policy

The meeting will start with an ice-breaker on Sunday evening (27. August 2017) and will end on Thursday (31. August 2017) at 16:00.
