Chemical Climate

Strategic Direction: Chemical Climate

1. In order to improve prediction of the Earth system across scales, quantify the chemical and dynamical coupling mechanisms between the upper and lower atmosphere.

2. In order to inform mitigation policies, identify the life cycle of short-term climate pollutants (reactive species and aerosols) and their impacts on climate.

3. In order to characterize the resilience of the Earth system to natural and anthropogenic disturbances, evaluate the role of chemical and biogeochemical feedbacks in the climate system.
