Climate and Air Quality Commission

The Climate and Air Quality Commission of the Austrian Academy of Sciences tackles issues concerning anthropogenic effects on the atmosphere along with their impacts on man and ecosystems and the understanding of how to react to such impacts. The topics focus on climate and climate change as well as on atmospheric trace gases and their impacts on air quality. The commission was established for the period 2013-2016. The inaugural meeting was held on April 22, 2013; public audience was invited for the first time when a scientific session involving renowned international participants took place on November 28, 2013. The goals and functions of this commission are laid down in the Proposal for a Consulting Commission
