Metrology for Climate Action workshop

Identifying measurement requirements and barriers to effective climate action

In the run up to COP26, NPL held a ‘Measurement for Climate Action’ workshop bringing together members of the international metrology community with the wider climate science community. The workshop discussed how metrology, the science of measurement, can support climate action by providing improved confidence in data.

The importance of metrology in climate change mitigation is widely recognised and in order to identify measurement requirements to effective climate action, Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) are hosting a workshop on 26 – 30 September 2022.

The online event will examine progress and future requirements for metrologists to support climate change science and identify gaps in provision and barriers to effective mitigation of climate change and impacts.

The workshop is open to those individuals and organisations actively engaged in climate science, earth observation, modelling, greenhouse gas mitigation, measurement and measurement science, and willing to contribute to developing recommendations on important metrology technical challenges in these fields.

As the UK’s National Metrology Institute, NPL recognises the importance of embedding metrology in the creation and delivery of climate information, and the workshop provides the opportunity to recommend the priority technical challenges for metrology for the coming decades. 

Registration and the call for abstract is open now
