IGACO - Ozone and UV radiation

IGACO (Integrated Global Atmospheric Chemistry Observations) is a strategy for bringing together ground-based, aircraft and satellite observations of 13 chemical species in the atmosphere. IGACO will be implemented as a strategic element of the Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW) programme of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

The implementation will be organised in four focus areas: Ozone, Aerosols, Greenhouse gases and Air Quality / Long-range transport. Activities in each focus area will be coordinated by a WMO, jointly with a IGACO Theme Office hosted by a research institution in the field. The IGACO-Ozone and UV Office is hosted by the Finnish Meteorological Institute.
