Human exposure to air pollution is a significant global environmental burden. By improving society’s knowledge of air pollution, we contribute towards improving air quality and reducing its impacts on people and economic development.
Weather such as storms, heatwaves and cold spells can impact water resources, infrastructure, agriculture and public health. To mitigate these risks, we contribute towards improved early warnings, risk assessments and further knowledge on climate change.
Human activities are now the major driver of changes in the atmosphere and its interactions with the earth’s climate. To inform adaptation and mitigation policies, we provide robust scientific evidence on how our atmosphere is changing.
