Direct Air Capture and Mineral Carbonation Approaches for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration: Proceedings of a Workshop–in Brief (2018)

Direct air capture (DAC) refers to a range of technologies that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from ambient air. These technologies include chemical scrubbing processes that capture CO2 through absorption or adsorption separation processes. DAC can also refer to processes that involve rapid mineralization of CO2 at the Earth's surface, termed mineral carbonation. This new publication summarizes a webinar and workshop that addressed: -... More >>

The Future of Atmospheric Boundary Layer Observing, Understanding, and Modeling: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

Improved observations of the atmospheric boundary layer (BL) and its interactions with the ocean, land, and ice surfaces have great potential to advance science on a number of fronts, from improving forecasts of severe storms and air quality to constraining estimates of trace gas emissions and transport. Understanding the BL is a crucial component of model advancements, and increased societal demands for extended weather impact forecasts (fro... More >>

Land Management Practices for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration Proceedings of a Workshop - in Brief (2018)

This new publication summarizes a webinar and workshop that addressed the potential of terrestrial carbon sequestration as a carbon dioxide removal (CDR) approach. More >>

Coastal Blue Carbon Approaches for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration: Proceedings of a Workshop—in Brief (2017)

Coastal environments provide many valuable ecosystem services. Their role as carbon sinks has been a topic of exploration to evaluate the potential for the restoration and management of coastal habitats as a viable carbon dioxide removal (CDR) approach. To explore the state of knowledge, technical research needs, costs, co-benefits, and societal and governance constraints of CDR in coastal ecosystems (often termed coastal blue carbon), th...

Opportunities to Improve Representation of Clouds and Aerosols in Climate Models with Classified Observing Systems: Proceedings of a Workshop: Abbreviated Version (2016)

The impact of aerosols on the atmosphere is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant and uncertain aspects of climate change projections. Aerosols influence the climate directly by increasing the amount of sunlight reflected back to space and indirectly through their interactions with clouds. Small changes in cloud cover, thickness, altitude, and cloud particle size and type (liquid vs. ice) affect the Earth's radiative balanc... More >>
