Call for Abstracts: Carbon: Challenges and Opportunities for the 21st Century (AGU 2018)
Deadline: 01. August 2018
"Carbon is an integral building block of life on Earth and has fueled unprecedented economic and societal progress. But with progress has come significant increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane, causing warming and other health and environmental impacts. While efforts to reduce reliance on carbon-based fuels proceed, there is also growing attention to ways to remove carbon from the atmosphere, reliably sequester it, and develop commercial uses for it. Recent National Academies’ reports address scientific and technical issues related to methane emissions monitoring, measurement, and verification; a range of carbon dioxide removal and storage approaches; and utilization of carbon waste streams. This session will expand on these topics, inviting presentations that discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with evolving approaches to manage carbon."
