Running Projects

MATCH Ozone Campaigns

Match Campaigns started as a key contribution to the International Polar Year 2007-2008 to conduct measurements of ozone loss in the stratosphere.

Non-linear dynamics of the remotely-sensed atmospheric data and modeling; Implications to Climate & Earth system science; Case studies for Athens (Greece) and Beijing (China)

The objective of the project is to explore the temporal and spatial variability of crucial atmospheric parameters for the dynamics of the climate and Earth system. In particular, the investigation of the spatio-temporal variability of the aerosol optical depth (AOD) and the atmospheric ozone content by utilizing modern tools of non-linear analysis is a principal component of the atmospheric and climate-dynamics modelling.

The International Co-operative Programme on Effects on Materials, including Historic and Cultural Monuments (ICP Materials. UNESCO)

The ICP was launched within the scope and the activities of the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution. The aim of the ICP activity is to fill some of the major gaps in scientific knowledge in the area of materials corrosion influenced by atmospheric pollutants by performing a quantitative evaluation of multi-pollutant effects on atmospheric corrosion on both technically important materials and materials used in historic and cultural monuments.
