ESRL Atmospheric Chemistry Research Review 2008

29-31 January • Boulder, Colorado

Laboratory scientific reviews are conducted every four years to evaluate the quality, relevance, and performance of research conducted in OAR laboratories to both internal and external interests, and to help strategically position the laboratory in its planning of its future science. These reviews are intended to ensure that OAR laboratory research is linked to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Strategic Plan, relevant to NOAA Research mission and priorities, and consistent with NOAA planning, programming, and budgeting.

This review covers atmospheric chemical sciences research at the Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) Chemical Sciences Division and Global Monitoring Division over the last four years. Specific research areas included in the review are:
