 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'COCOS will assess the status of harmonization of key carbon cycle variables with international partners. It will improve the interoperability of data sets that are used in global scale carbon cycle studies through joint activities between ecosystem, atmospheric and ocean bottom-up and top down observation communities. COCOS will also perform integrated regional-scale multiple constraint assessments of the land and ocean carbon balance through the use of harmonized data sets. It will identify, narrow down uncertainties and decrease differences in emerging global data sets that are aimed at providing constraints on the vulnerability of the global carbon cycle. COCOS will thus contribute to the implementation and improvement of global observing systems. It will organize a large international conference to demonstrate the status and way ahead of global carbon observations in light of monitoring requirements for GEO and the implementation of future climate change mitigation commitments. As such, it will contribute to an effective monitoring of the carbon cycle at global level as recommended by GEO and GCOS in supporting the European participation to an international CO2 research monitoring project. The research and harmonization work developed in this proposal will contribute significantly to building an integrated global approach that promotes close collaboration with the international carbon cycle research community.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Current understanding of the global carbon cycle relies on various loosely interlinked studies and data sets. Coordination and better integration of these studies has improved the quality of climate change observation systems and research outcomes.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

In order to successfully mitigate or adapt to climate change we need reliable and standardised data. There has been a lack of data coordination at the global scale, which has led to some uncertainties.

The 'Coordination action carbon observation system' (COCOS) project was funded by the EU to improve and expand on current global carbon cycle research. Project partners successfully established international partnerships and produced the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) carbon strategy report. The report now serves as the blueprint for global carbon observation, and its approach integrates data from land, sea and space.

Moreover, COCOS established a coordinated database for all researchers working on the global carbon cycle, and it created regional-scale carbon budget maps. The project also supported several small workshops and a conference on global carbon cycle monitoring.

Understanding the global carbon cycle and how it will affect us in the future relies heavily on accurate and well integrated data collection. COCOS has taken steps toward a broad, interconnected and robust observation network, that will allow for new insights into this important research area.
