The Atmosphere Science Cluster – Research Opportunities 4 – European Coordinated Global Methane (CH4) Assessment is established under the Scientific Exploitation component of the FutureEO Programme.

It is intended to support innovative scientific development, which responds to research and networking opportunities in the Atmospheric research domain.

This activity is part of a coordination initiative between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission (EC) on Earth System Science. Under the EC-ESA Earth System Science Initiative (ESSI), both institutions aim at coordinating efforts to support complementary collaborative projects. WhileESA contributes to ESSI via the Atmosphere Science Cluster, on the side of the EC funding is provided through complementary scientific activities under Horizon Europe.

This call will primarily deal with enhancing the understanding of the increasing methane trend, by developing novel methane products that allow the detection and the quantification of methane source and sink dynamics at global and ecosystem scales.
