Concerted action : synthesis of the european greenhouse gas budget

Objective

The European greenhouse gas budget is composed of clearly anthropogenic elements such as emissions from fossil fuel combustion, technical processing or waste (direct human emissions) and of biospheric sources and sinks such as agricultural land, forests, and wetlands, which are related to human-induced activities through land management and indirect effects (human induced biospheric emissions and removals). The overarching goal of the Concerted Action CARBOEUROPE GHG is to provide a synthesis based on current research results of the European greenhouse gases budget, including both human induced and biospheric sources and sinks and recommendations for a multi-disciplinary integration in order to provide the scientific foundation for a full carbon and, even broader, full greenhouse gas accounting system by 2010.
