The symposium "Global Warming and Methane Uptake in Upland Soils as Key Processes for Future Climate" will be held at the 69th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Japan, which will be held in a hybrid format (online + on-site in Fukuoka + on-demand streaming) from March 14-19, 2022.

Soils in forests and agricultural lands are the main sources and sinks for atmospheric methane, which has a greenhouse effect 28 times greater than that of carbon dioxide. So how much methane can forest and farmland soils absorb? How does the amount of methane that can be absorbed change with global warming? Clarifying these questions is an important key to reducing the uncertainty of climate change predictions and realizing methane reduction through afforestation, forest and agricultural land management, etc.

In this symposium, 10 researchers including Dr. KONDO Toshiaki of JIRCAS will present the latest results of studies on methane sequestration capacity of ecosystem soils using various approaches. The symposium also aims to provide a forum for discussion on methane sequestration in soils across various disciplines.

To participate in the symposium on-site or online, or to watch the on-demand streaming, please register to the 69th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Japan. We look forward to your participation.
