What role does measurement play in climate action
During the UNFCCC’s 26th Conference of the Parties, ‘COP26’ held in Glasgow from 1- 12 November, the UK Universities Network is running an Innovation Showcase. Through this platform, the University of Bristol and its academic partners will co-host an online seminar for the general public and delegates interested in learning more about the measurements behind climate science.
What role does measurement play in climate action? seminar will be held on November 11th 2021, 13.00-15.30 hrs GMT, and will allow delegates to find out about:
- Pioneering projects helping us understand greenhouse gas emissions (GHG)
- Measurement techniques and why accuracy matters
- In-situ measurements during COP 26
- Careers and studentships in measurement science
- Current and future collaborations in climate science and the impact of measurement on Policy
During this free on-line event the Universities of Bristol, Edinburgh and Royal Holloway and NPL will explore the critical role measurement plays in understanding and responding to climate change, particularly through the Detection and Attribution of Regional greenhouse gas Emissions (DARE-UK) project. The seminar discusses what is needed to provide confidence in delivering accuracy and reliability to greenhouse gas emissions estimates, that governments, regulators and industry can rely on. This live on-line event will feature some of the very latest research through a series of short talks and panel debate with speakers from the Met Office, Ricardo, Airbus and NPL, providing delegates with the chance to hear quiz the experts about future science directions.
