Research Area C: Large scale distributions, processes and impact
Research Questions (C)
RQ-C1: What is the regional and temporal variability of trace gas and aerosols distribution on seasonal and
multiannual time scales in the UTLS?
RQ-C2: Which large scale processes dominate the concentrations of radiatively important trace gases and particles
in the UTLS?
RQ-C3: Which (large scale) chemical, radiative and dynamical feedbacks impact the UTLS and regions beyond
the UTLS, e.g. the surface climate and the stratospheric circulation, and how are these feedbacks modified
by climate change?
