ESRI Conference in San Diego  
 The  Editor. 2006.



The ESRI conference in San Diego will be presenting a poster that will describe a new databasethat will be available from CDIAC. This spatially-explicit global data set provides estimates and spatial distribution of the above- and below-ground carbon stored in living plant material, and provides an important input to climate, carbon cycle, and conservation studies. The data set was created by updating the classic study by Olson (1983) “Major World Ecosystem Complexes Ranked by Carbon in Live Vegetation_ with a contemporary map of global vegetation distribution (Global Land Cover database; GLC2000).

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics '07  
http://www.iobis.org/Members/brantonb/obi07/OBI_poster.htm
 The Editor. 2006.

An Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference (OBI'07) is proposed for Nov. 26-28, 2007 at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Canada. The unifying theme for this conference will be enhancing data quality assurance as well as extending the range of information products that biodiversity informatics practitioners must be developing and delivering to satisfy the needs of users on many different levels (e.g. general public, academics, decision makers, and industry). In other words, translating the data housed in databases into products that are useful for society in general and decision makers in particular. Our primary challenge will be to see ocean biodiversity data made useful beyond satisfying the curiosity of the principal investigator.

 The Editor. 2006.



A combined meeting of the third biennial global vegetation workshop and the Committee on Earth Observing Satellites Working Group on Calibration and Validation will be held August 8-10, 2006 at the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana, USA. The primary objective of this workshop is to establish a framework to understand the inter-relationship between multiple, global vegetation products so to identify opportunities for increasing knowledge through combined products, realizing efficiency by avoiding redundancy, and developing near- and long-term plans to avoid gaps in our understanding of critical global vegetation information.

Fifth Annual Conference on Carbon Capture & Sequestration   
http://www.carbonsq.com/
 The  Editor. 2006.

The Fifth Annual Conference on Carbon Capture and Sequestration was held 8-11 May 2006 in Alexandria, Virginia, U.S.A. After the launching of the Climate Change Science Program, DOE established a government-wide Climate Change Technology Program to complement the science initiative and work on technologies to mitigate climate change, possibly caused by carbon emissions. Following that action, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum was created to facilitate U.S. cooperation with the international community to work to develop carbon capture, separation, and sequestration technologies that would allow developed and ‘emerging economy’ nations to utilize their vast fossil resources, but in a manner that would reduce carbon intensity. The 2006 conference was an important event that involved scientific and technological information on ways to reduce carbon emissions by utilizing carbon capture, transmission, or sequestration methods. See also the DOE Office of Science Carbon Sequestration Web site (http://cdiac2.ornl.gov/) and CSITE (http://csite.ornl.gov/).
