MEMO2: Methane goes MObile – MEsurements and MOdelling
Convener: Sylvia Walter | Co-convener: Thomas Röckmann
Thu, 11 Apr, 12:45–13:45
Room 2.17

During the splinter meeting we would like to introduce MEMO2 – a European Training Network with more than 20 collaborators from 7 countries - to the scientific community. We will present the program and discuss first results. Aim is to create a public awareness right from the beginning and initiate collaborations beyond the network.
MEMO2 will identify and evaluate methane emissions and support mitigation measures by I) developing new and advanced mobile methane measurements tools and networks, isotopic source identification, and modelling at different scales, and II) educating a new generation of “cross–thinking” scientists, which are able to effectively implement novel measurement and modelling tools in an interdisciplinary and intersectoral context. MEMO2 will bridge the gap between large-scale scientific estimates from in situ monitoring programs and the 'bottom-up' estimates of emissions from local sources that are used in the national reporting.
