General Assembly 2018

The SPARC (Stratosphere-troposphere Processes And their Role in Climate) 2018 General Assembly will be held from 1-5 October 2018 in Kyoto, Japan. General Assemblies are opportunities for SPARC to take stock of what has been achieved, where gaps in the portfolio of research undertaken by SPARC need to be filled, and to define where SPARC needs to be moving to remain responsive to the needs of both its members and the users of SPARC research products. It will be the sixth such gathering of SPARC scientists from around the globe.
