Workshop for Journalists on PEGASOS Airship Campaign

17 November 2011, Friedrichshafen, Germany

Prior to the Zeppelin Campaign of the EU-funded research project PEGASOS, a workshop for journalists is held at ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 17 November 2011.

The project:
In spring 2012, scientists of the EU-funded PEGASOS project will embark on a Europe-wide
research mission with a Zeppelin NT airship. The aim is to explore relationships between atmospheric chemistry and climate change. In 2012, measurement flights will take the research team to the Netherlands and then on to Italy. In 2013, the north-bound flight leads from Friedrichshafen, Germany, to Finland.

The workshop:
The scientists are currently carrying out a trial campaign to test different cabin layouts and measuring instruments for different experiments on the ground and in the air. During the workshop, journalists will have the opportunity to speak to the researchers about the campaign and the measuring techniques, and to see the equipment and how it is installed in the Zeppelin.


For further information and registration, please contact Dr. Barbara Schunk or Ms Annette
Stettien

CLAMER Conference - Living with a Warming Ocean

14-15 September 2011, Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts, Brussels

The one-day conference will present key findings of the FP7 CLAMER project. Leading experts on climate change science (including a representative of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) will give presentations in the morning of 15 September, while three parallel discussion groups (on European marine policies; on science and public awareness; and on research agenda for the future) will be held in the afternoon.

The findings include:

  • results of the pan-European public poll, conducted to investigate public views and understanding about climate change and the marine environment;
  • main messages from a state-of-the-art overview of results and scientific outputs of marine climate change research in Europe.


The conference will be anticipated on the evening of 14 September with the premiere of the CLAMER documentary "Living with a warming ocean", filmed in seven European countries and focusing on the attitudes towards science communication regarding climate change and its impacts on marine waters.

Participation is free of charge, but registration for the pre-event and/or the conference and discussion groups is required.
