The Atmosphere Collaboration Team of the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is hosting two webinars on black carbon, which are open to the community. Experts on both topics will be on hand to share information and answer questions in an effort to inform the team of possible future interagency activities related to Arctic black carbon.

Webinar 1: Mitigation Activities

  • March 28, 2014, 3:00-4:30 p.m. EDT
    The Arctic black carbon mitigation initiative aims to reduce black carbon emissions in and around the Arctic. The mitigation efforts have three focus areas: transportation, residential/industrial pollution, and biomass burning.

Webinar 2: Arctic Black Carbon Science Activities

  • April 18, 2014, 3:00-4:30 p.m. EDT
    Current science questions and activities related to Arctic black carbon include the identification of sources and types of black carbon; measurement challenges using ground-based, in situ, and satellite remote sensing; and transport modeling.
