14th International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space


Welcome to the 14th International Workshop on Greenhouse Gas Measurements from Space (IWGGMS-14), which will be held on the St. George campus at the University of Toronto on 8-10 May 2018.

All workshop sessions will be located in the Earth Sciences Centre, 5 Bancroft Ave, Toronto, ON.

The goal of the workshop is to review the state of the art in remote sensing of carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases from space, including:

  • Results from GOSAT, OCO-2, TanSat, TROPOMI, and other missions;
  • Pre-flight and on-orbit instrument calibration and bias correction techniques;
  • Greenhouse gas retrieval algorithms;
  • Validation methods, instrumentation, and results;
  • Solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF);
  • Related ground-based, ship-borne, and air-borne measurements;
  • Flux inversion from space-based greenhouse gas measurements; and
  • Status of future greenhouse gas missions including GOSAT-2, OCO-3, TanSat-2, MicroCarb, MERLIN, GeoCarb, Copernicus missions, ASCENDS, and others.
