The Swiss science community and the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research are proud to organize the 10th anniversary International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC). The first conference of this series took place in Bern, Switzerland, and we now bring the conference back to the Bern area.
The focus of ICDC10 is on changes in carbon dioxide and the carbon cycle, and their interactions and links to climate and human activities from the regional to the global scale, and from the past into the future.
The purpose of this conference is to bring together scientists from different disciplines to work towards an integrated view on the global cycle of carbon in the Earth System. Spatial scales considered range from local and regional towards global synthesis, temporal scales from hours to millennia. Periods addressed include the contemporary, industrial, and future, as well as the last millennia, glacial/interglacial, and stadial/interstadial periods.
Topics will include:
- trends and variability in carbon stocks and fluxes
- land use and land management
- carbon-ecosystem-climate feedbacks and vulnerabilities
- extreme events
- linkages between CO2 and other greenhouse gases and between carbon and related tracers (e.g., oxygen, nutrients, and isotopes)
- direct and indirect effects of high CO2 including ocean acidification
- natural and anthropogenic drivers
- allowable anthropogenic carbon emissions to meet multiple climate targets
- emission mitigation
- information from atmospheric, oceanic, terrestrial measurements and monitoring networks, from paleo archives, from process, inverse, and Earth System models
