Project:
COS-OCS - Carbonyl Sulfide: New ways of Observing the Climate System
01.09.2017 to 01.10.2022
General project description 

The future climate of the Earth strongly depends on the capacity of the global ecological system to sequester atmospheric CO2, and on the abundance of stratospheric sulphate aerosols (SSA). These two climate-regulating mechanisms are intricately linked to an atmospheric gas that makes up only a tiny fraction of the Earth's atmosphere, carbonyl sulphide (COS).  The COS-OCS project aims to fundamentally improve our limited understanding of the COS atmospheric budget, by combining innovative modelling and measurements.
