GHG Europe

Work Progress

The work performed since the beginning of the project and main results are described along the 4 overarching scientific objectives of GHG-Europe.


Objective 1:

Quantify the annual to decadal variability of CO2, N2O and CH4 budgets of terrestrial ecosystems in Europe.

Objective 2:

Obtain a better and more comprehensive understanding of the terrestrial carbon cycle and responses of CO2, N2O and CH4 fluxes to the variability in natural and anthropogenic drivers and pressures for European forest, grassland, cropland, peatland and shrubland ecosystems.

Objective 3:

Identify the carbon pools and GHG processes most sensitive and vulnerable to changes in individual drivers and in driver combinations, and the associated risks of positive feedbacks with climate change in the 21st century.

Objective 4:

Assess, in economic, societal and environmental terms, the impact of possible post-2012 strategies / policies on future carbon pools and CO2, N2O and CH4 fluxes in Europe and possible synergies by coordination of different land use related policies and of cross-sectoral climate policies.
