SPARC assessment reports
SPARC comprehensive peer-reviewed assessment reports (ISSN 2296-5785 (Print), ISSN 2296-5793 (Online)) include:
- The SPARC Data Initiative: Assessment of stratospheric trace gas and aerosol climatologies from satellite limb sounders (SPARC Report N°8, 2017)
- Solving the Mystery of Carbon Tetrachloride (SPARC Report N°7, 2016)
- Lifetimes of Stratospheric Ozone-Depleting Substances (SPARC Report N°6, 2013)
- Chemistry-Climate Model Validation (SPARC Report N°5, 2010)
- Stratospheric Aerosol Properties (SPARC Report N°4, 2006)
- Intercomparison of Middle Atmosphere Climatologies (SPARC Report N°3, 2002)
- Upper Tropospheric and Stratospheric Water Vapour (SPARC Report N°2, 2000)
- Trends in the Vertical Distribution of Ozone (SPARC Report N°1, 1998)
Work is currently underway to produce several additional reports:
- Interim report (to be published in 2017) by SPARC Reanalysis Intercomparison Project (S-RIP)
- Report of the Long-term Ozone Trends and Uncertainties in the Stratosphere (LOTUS) activity (to be published in 2018).
Other reports of interest:
- Kurylo, M.J., B.-M. Sinnhuber et al. (2009) The Role of Halogen Chemistry in Polar Stratospheric Ozone Depletion.
Several activities have produced special journal issues rather than science reports. Find the full list on the journal publications page.
