ICP VEGETATION

29th session WGE

Flux-based critical levels for ozone

ICP Vegetation Expert Panel Meeting

‘Flux-based assessment of ozone effects for air pollution policy’

9-12 November, 2009, JRC-Ispra, Italy

Integrated science for our changing worldwww.ceh.ac.uk

  • 42 experts:12 Parties to the Convention, ICP Vegetation, ICP

    Forests, TFIAM, CIAM, EMEP, JRC, Convention Secretariat

  • Agreed on methodology and further data analysis before 23rd TFM

  • Follow-on discussions and decisions at 23rd TFM (Feb 2010)

  • Adoption of 10 new/revised flux-based CLs & their

  • application, incl. policy-relevant indicators for IAM

  • Agreed at 26th ICP M&M TFM, 26th ICP Forests TFM

29th session WGE

23rd Task Force Meeting

(CODA-CERVA, Tervuren, Belgium, 1-3 February, 2010)

  • 58 experts from 20 countries, including Cuba and Japan and a representative from EMEP-MSC/East Unfortunately the Secretariat was not able to attend

  • Main decisions:

    • 10 new/revised flux-based ozone critical levels

    • O3 & food security report (end 2010)

    • O3, carbon sequestration and CC report (end 2011)

    • Review mosses as biomonitors of POPs (2011)

    • Pilot study on POPs during 2010/11 moss survey

ICP VEGETATION

29th session WGE

Workshop on Climate & Air (Oct. 2009)

  • Co-benefits for reducing surface ozone concentrations for both air

    pollution and climate change policies

  • Stomatal O3 flux: CC factors incorporated

  • O3 and CC impacts on vegetation are

    complex: Non-linearity of interactions

    Scaling up

  • Impacts of ozone on vegetation and feedbacks to climate need to

    be included in global climate models in order to better predict

    consequences for C sequestration and hydrological cycles

  • More large scale, long-term multi-component field studies required

    (including for parameterisation and validation of model components)
