Comet-Farm: The USA farm-scale modeling methods organized by Colorado University

29 April, 2020
8:00 MDT / 16:00 CEST
Online event

In this webinar, you will learn about the COMET-Farm platform quantification methods of soil carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions at a farm/ranch scale as well as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) entity scale GHG methods.

What are the current applications of such methods in the USA context?

Secondly, the Comet Global system, based on the previous tool developed by Colorado State University, is a decision support tool that will allow GHG emissions assessments from individual farms. During this Webinar, a short demo will allow the participant to get to know this tool.

How can these tools contribute to the CIRCASA upcoming International Research Consortium on agricultural soil carbon sequestration? The answer, next 29th April!

Speakers

Keith Paustian – Colorado State University
University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences and Senior Research Scientist at the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University. A major focus of his work involves modeling, field measurements, and development of assessment tools for soil carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions from soils.

Kevin D. Brown - Colorado State University
Lead Software Engineer for the Paustian Group at the CSU. Since 2010, Kevin has helped architect and develop many software applications, most notably the COMET-Farm suite of applications. Kevin is also the director of the Research Software Facility at CSU leading a team of software developers and graphic designers continuing to work on COMET as well as other software development projects.
