Global Atmosphere Watch Conference held



19 January 2011

Greenhouse gases, ozone monitoring and recovery, and Aerosol-cloud interractions were among the topics under the spotlight at a two-day conference which examined research conducted by the Swiss national arm of WMO's Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW) Programme, which monitors and assesses the influence of human activity on the global atmosphere.

This conference presented the main results of the GAW-CH projects carried out from 2007 to 2009. During this period, numerous scientists from several Swiss institutions were active in research and monitoring projects, covering topics such as stratospheric processes, cloud properties, radiative forcing, aerosols and trace gases. As well as reviewing the outcome of these GAW-CH projects, the conference looked ahead to the GAW-CH projects planned for 2010-2013.
