Week 3 – Large scale changes – Ozone and GHGs
A look at GHGs and climate change, ozone and CFCs, and other types of in situ measurements including high altitude balloons and commercial aircraft
This topic looks at how we monitor and model greenhouse gases, which is pivotal in the monitoring and management of climate change.
This topic looks at the role of Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and ozone concentrations over Antarctica.
In this topic Philippe Cocquerez will introduce you to high altitude balloon measurements of the atmosphere.
In this topic Frederic Thoumieux looks at high altitude balloon measurements in more depth.
