We are happy to announce the first peer-reviewed publication of the SEACRIFOG project! The interdisciplinary paper titled “Towards a feasible and representative pan-African Research Infrastructure network for GHG observations” is published in the special issue “Focus on Environmental Research Infrastructures: New Scientific Capabilities to Address Global Challenges” of the journal “Environmental Research Letters” (ERL). The publication focuses on the approach and first results of the project. We discuss the findings of stakeholder consultation workshops, a rating to identify the ideal set of variables to observe in the African context and an inventory and mapping of existing observation stations in Africa. The mapping confirms the feeling of many stakeholders that observation stations are too scattered across the continent. A correlation between population density and the degree of human disturbance is also shown. The full paper is free accessible here.
