WMO Hosts European Earth Observation and Monitoring Meeting

28 January 2009: A joint annual meeting of Global Earth Observation and Monitoring (GEOmon) and Infrastructure for Measurements of the European Carbon Cycle (IMECC) was hosted by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Geneva, Switzerland, from 26-30 January 2009.

GEOmon is a European project contributing to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems. Its mission is to build an integrated pan-European atmospheric observing system of greenhouse gases, reactive gases, aerosols, and stratospheric ozone.

The IMECC project aims to build the infrastructure for a coordinated, calibrated, integrated and accessible dataset for characterizing the carbon balance of Europe. [Meeting Documents]
