pub23.gif (48818 bytes)Abstract
Ottawa, Canada, February 8-11, 2000

In response to an increasing interest in terrestrial carbon and following a proposal led by the Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS), the Integrated Global Observing Strategy Partnership (IGOS-P) approved terrestrial carbon cycle as its second major theme in November, 1999. This report presents the results of a follow-up Terrestrial Carbon Observation (TCO) Synthesis Workshop, organised by GTOS in collaboration with the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) and other IGOS-P members on February 8-11, 2000 in Ottawa, Canada. The workshop was designed to summarise existing information and observation requirements regarding terrestrial carbon, conduct initial evaluation of existing data or observations in relation to the requirements, identify major gaps or deficiencies, and propose solutions.
