Chemistry & Climate Processes

Research Highlight Ozone Layer: Chemicals that deplete Earth's protective ozone layer have also been triggering changes in Southern Hemisphere atmospheric circulation. Now, new research finds that those changes have paused and might even be reversing because of the Montreal Protocol, an international treaty that successfully phased out use of ozone-depleting chemicals.

Focus

The primary focus of our research group is to provide integrated analysis and modeling that addresses chemistry/climate processes spanning the troposphere and stratosphere. We use these capabilities to provide science and science leadership that improves understanding and directly assists public policy.

Our Work

Collaborations

The group collaborates widely, as indicated in our publication lists. Key collaborations include those with other research groups in CSL and GML, other NOAA units including NCDC and GFDL, and with NCAR, industry, EPA, NASA, NSF, academic and government institutions in the U. S. and overseas, and international research organizations (IGBP, WCRP).
