Chemical composition and climate

Changes in the Earth system induced by human activities and their impact on life and natural environment are arguably the greatest environmental challenge facing us in the twenty- first century.

In order to inform decision makers on climate change mitigation and adaptation, a systematic monitoring of the global atmosphere and climate system is needed.

BIRA-IASB is involved in several important international programmes and projects, such as:

  • ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI)
  • Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring (CAMS)
  • Climate Change Service (C3S)
