We look forward to bringing together the broad range of carbon researchers from within New Zealand along with overseas experts to review our current understanding of the global carbon cycle, its biogeochemical interactions and to look ahead at the science research challenges associated with the need to mitigate fossil carbon emission and develop policies for carbon constraint.

This workshop opens with Keynote addresses from Dr, Pep Canadell, Executive Director of the Global Carbon Project www.globalcarbonproject.org and Prof Martin Manning, VUW (Director of IPCC WG1 Support Unit for 4AR). The following programme has 4 sessions considering
