ICOS Cities talks: Urban emission monitoring – general overview of current options


Many cities around the world have set ambitious emission reduction targets and are developing climate action plans. To properly follow-up on the mitigation effects a reliable monitoring and verification system is needed. There are different approaches including β€œbottom-up” and β€œtop-down”. Bottom-up generally means following trends in emission inventories which can be of various levels of sophistication, whereas the top-down approach also includes measurements. We will give an overview of the capabilities, their limitations, and possible applications for the cities.
