Carbon-Climate System Workshop

15-18 MARCH 2015 - The Carbon-Climate System Workshop in Norman, OK. A community workshop to review developments in carbon science and identify needed measurements for the coming Decadal Survey process. Contact Dave Schimel (JPL), Piers Sellers (GSFC) or Berrien Moore III (University of Oklahoma) for more information. The agenda is available. By invitation only.


The Earth Sciences Division at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center plans, organizes, evaluates, and implements a broad program of research on our planet's natural systems and processes. Major focus areas include climate change, severe weather, the atmosphere, the oceans, sea ice and glaciers, and the land surface.

To study the planet from the unique perspective of space, the Earth Science Division develops and operates remote-sensing satellites and instruments. We analyze observational data from these spacecraft and make it available to the world's scientists. Our Education and Public Outreach efforts raise public awareness of the the Division's research and its benefits to society.
