Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science (IAC)
- Data Manager:
The Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science (IAC) is part of the Department of Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich). The IAC focuses on atmospheric and climate processes, including links to the hydrosphere, cryosphere, and biosphere. Research is directed at understanding how human activities alter these processes via changes in greenhouse gases, aerosols, chemical constituents, and land surfaces and how this impacts upon climate, ozone, UV radiation, pollutant exposure, ecosystems, water resources and extreme events. Emphasisis placed on the improvement of the predictive capabilities on weather and climate time scales and on knowledge transfer between basic sciences, applied sciences, and society.
