New Blog: Should SPARC change its name?

WCRP requested that SPARC not only focusses on stratospheric research but also on the troposphere.

A blog was set up to give the SPARC community the opportunity to take part in an open discussion about a possible name change for SPARC. Welcome to contribute!
