The  three primary objectives of CAMELS will be
  • to provide a consistent estimate of the European land carbon sink by making intelligent use of all of the existing data-sources, which provide both small-scale constraints (e.g. flux measurements, inventory estimates) and large-scale constraints (e.g. atmospheric CO2 measurements, remote sensing products).
  • to elucidate the mechanisms responsible for the contemporary land carbon sink (in Europe and elsewhere), isolating the contribution due to direct land management.
  • to develop a carbon cycle data assimilation system (CCDAS) which optimally combines data and models to produce operational estimates of the European carbon sink and its constituent contributions
