This year marks the 30th anniversary of SPARC, a core project of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). In this time, SPARC has evolved into a major international research coordination hub for atmospheric sciences, with the primary goal to facilitate research that improves our understanding of atmospheric processes and their role in climate.
SPARC is particularly recognised for its lively scientific community. To celebrate SPARC’s achievements over the last three decades, we invite you all to celebrate with us and join us for a series of three webinars leading up to the grand SPARC General Assembly in October 2022.
We are delighted to announce we will host the first SPARC 30th anniversary webinar on Thursday 21st April 2022 13:00 UTC. Prof. Susan Solomon from the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will give a presentation on “Evolving Challenges in Stratospheric Processes and their Role in Climate”, taking us through some history of how our science has experienced a succession of things that have challenged our understanding and how the science community rose to the challenges. She will also talk about the recent findings related to stratospheric research and that there is still more to discover.
