Changes in the Earth system induced by human activities and their impact on life and natural environment are arguably the greatest environmental challenge facing us in the twenty- first century.
In order to inform decision makers on climate change mitigation and adaptation, a systematic monitoring of the global atmosphere and climate system is needed.
BIRA-IASB is involved in several important international programmes and projects, such as:
- ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI)
- Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring (CAMS)
- Climate Change Service (C3S)
