Event Description

The goal of the 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference "Forest Monitoring to assess Forest Functioning under Air Pollution and Climate Change" is to highlight the extensive ICP Forests data series on forest growth, phenology and leaf area index, biodiversity and ground vegetation, foliage and litter fall, ambient air quality, deposition, meteorology, soil and crown condition. We combine novel modeling and assessment approaches and integrate long-term trends to assess air pollution and climate effects on European forests and related ecosystem services. Latest results and conclusions from local scale to European scale studies will be presented and discussed.

The 9th ICP Forests Scientific Conference will be held from 7-9 June 2021 next year followed by the 37th Task Force Meeting of ICP Forests, taking place on 10-11 June 2021 at the WSL in Birmensdorf, Switzerland, and by a Post-Conference Excursion from 11-12 June 2021 in the Swiss Alps.
