This book assessesnbsp;the current greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring capabilities of Europe, identifies and quantifies the uncertainties involved, and outlines the direction to a continental scale GHG monitoring network. The chapters provide a synthesis, based on current research results, of the European greenhouse gases budget, including both human-induced and biospheric sources and sinks. The authors also make recommendations for a multi-disciplinary integration in order to provide the scientific foundation for a full carbon, and possibly full greenhouse, accounting system by 2010. Through the CarboEurope project, Europe is taking the lead in much of this research,nbsp;and it will be of interestnbsp;to other areas of the world as well.The book uniquely addresses both the methodology of carbon cycle science and the science itself.nbsp;Rather than being a straight methods book, it is a synthesis of carbon cycle science.nbsp; The methods included are valuable, but are used to contribute to an understanding of biospheric regulation, providingnbsp;the first comprehensive coverage of a full GHG accounting and monitoring system.nbsp
