The objective of the seminar “Izaña: 100-‐years of atmospheric observations” is to deliberate about our capability to understand the variability in the composition of the atmosphere and its connection to climate. This seminar will be conduced through a set of presentations and a further discussion that will cover three specific subjects:
• Long-‐term observation programs: what have we learnt? (connection to climate variability, impact of human activities, impacts on human health and climate related processes, etc..)
• How long term observation programs should evolve? (needs for future, measurements of new atmospheric components, techniques, convergence with other scientific disciplines)
• Capabilities to assess the impacts of future climate? (the role of modeling, environmental policies, mitigation, social and economic impacts ....)
The presentations will cover subjects such as aerosols, dust, radiation, trace gases, green house gases, modeling and air quality.
The final discussion will cover several topics, including how the observation systems should evolve to help to the future scientists to understand the changes in the composition of the atmosphere and the implications on climate.
