Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is sponsoring a workshop on
June 2 and 3 to discuss technical barriers to our ability to accurately
measure, report and verify greenhouse gas emissions, a critical issue
in addressing a major factor in climate change.
The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Quantification
and Verification Strategies Workshop, to be held at Scripps Seaside
Forum in La Jolla, Calif., aims to create a dialog among scientific and
industrial experts concerning the best ways to measure, report and
verify greenhouse gas emissions from varied sources both in local areas
and globally. These insights will form the basis for a consensus
document, which will outline the key recommendations for quantifying
emissions and verification strategies for the future.
Among the main questions for consideration
at the workshop will be:
- What kind of accuracy do we need when
measuring emissions in the context of pending regulation and efforts to
mitigate climate impacts, and why?
- How do we effectively allocate the carbon
- Who is responsible for improvements in
- What are the key challenges and gaps in
measurement and monitoring?
