During March 8-10th 2016, the Monitoring Station Assembly of the ICOS Atmospheric Thematic Centre (https://icos-atc.lsce.ipsl.fr/) will meet in Brno. The meeting will host 65 international scientists and focus on organizational as well as scientific and technical progress within the atmospheric part of the ICOS network. Some visitors will also take part in a field trip to the Atmospheric Station Křešín u Pacova, which is just about stepping into the labelling process to become an ICOS Class 1 site.
Extreme weather fluctuations, melting icebergs, rising ocean levels – these are just some of the impacts of climate change. What are possible scenarios, what influences them, what can governments do and what can we do as individuals?
