The ICOS France scientific days took place this year in Reims and gathered about 100 people from the 3 networks: atmosphere, ecosystem and ocean.
It was an opportunity to attend quality communications and many exchanges in our scientific community. Thanks to the organizers, speakers and participants!
You can now download all the presentations here.
The summer of 2021 and the series of catastrophic events observed in the Northern Hemisphere (mega fires, floods, heat domes) demonstrate the tangible reality of climate disruption. The ICOS France Open Science Days, organized in Reims from October 12 to 14, 2021, will present the latest research and data on the carbon cycle and on the impacts of rare events.
Four speakers will inaugurate the open presentation sessions that will be organized on October 12 and 13 in Reims. The latest report of the G.I.E.C. Working Group I (Valérie Masson, co-chair), methods for determining surface fluxes (Frédéric Chevallier, L.S.C.E.), carbon in surface waters from source to ocean (Richard Sanders, head of the Ocean thematic center), or the coupling of carbon and nitrogen cycles (Mark Sutton, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology) will be presented.
These days will be organized to minimize its fossil carbon emissions with the involvement of the hotel school of Reims.
The submission of abstracts for oral and poster communications will be closed on September 15. Registration will be closed on September 27.

The winter heat wave in February 2020, followed by the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions due to COVID 19 lock-down, a new drought and several hot days during last summer, and a new period of near-universal lock-down during the winter of 2021 are unpredictable and historically unprecedented events that affect the atmospheric greenhouse gas budget.
They highlight the critical importance of accurate, distributed, real-time measurements of the surface carbon cycle. The ICOS France research infrastructure, its laboratories and data processing centres, and the network of stations it deploys in the atmosphere, ocean surface waters, and on major types of continental ecosystems, responds well to this challenge today.
The scientific days organized in Reims from October 12th to 14th 2021 will present the latest research developed by ICOS France, new sensors under development or already in use, major projects under development on urbanized ecosystems, the most recent data on the carbon cycle and on the impacts of rare events. They will be sponsored by several international speakers who will shed light on the latest report of the I.G.I.E.C. working group (Valérie Masson, co-chair of Working Group I), methods for determining surface fluxes (Frédéric Chevallier, L.S.C.E.), carbon in surface waters from source to ocean (Richard Sanders, head of the ICOS Ocean thematic center), or the coupling of the carbon and nitrogen cycles (Mark Sutton, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology).
The annual Scientific and Technical Assembly of ICOS-France will take place this year from October 11 to 15, 2021 at Reims.
Registration will be possible from May. The provisional program will also be communicated .
We hope lots of you come !
