|Duration:||2004 - 2009|
|Funded by:||European Commission|
The IMUK participated as one of the 64 partner institutions at the five year project SCOUT-O3. Aim of the project was to provide predictions about the evolution of the coupled chemistry/climate system, with emphasis on ozone change in the lower stratosphere and the associated climate impact. The project was structured in eight activities, in which the IMUK took a leading role within the executive committee, especially in activity 4: UV radiation. The results of the project contributed significantly to the „Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion 2006 and 2010“ of the WMO.
