 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The Pan-European Gas-AeroSOls-climate interaction Study (PEGASOS) European large scale integrating project brings together most of the leading European research groups, with state-of the-art observational and modeling facilities to: (1) Quantify the magnitude of regional to global feedbacks between atmospheric chemistry and a changing climate and to reduce the corresponding uncertainty of the major ones. (2) Identify mitigation strategies and policies to improve air quality while limiting their impact on climate change. The project is organized into four scientific Themes designed to optimize the integration of methodologies, scales, and ultimately our understanding of air quality and climate interactions: (I) Anthropogenic and biogenic emissions and their response to climate and socio-economy (II) Atmospheric interactions among chemical and physical processes (III) Regional and global links between atmospheric chemistry and climate change (IV) Air quality in a changing climate: Integration with policy PEGASOS will bridge the spatial and temporal scales that connect local surface-air pollutant exchanges, air quality and weather with global atmospheric chemistry and climate. Our major focus for air quality will be Europe including effects of changes in pollutant emissions elsewhere and the time horizon for the study will be the next 50 years. During the project we will provide improved process understanding in areas of major uncertainty for better quantification of feedbacks between air quality and a changing climate. We will present, for the first time, a fully integrated analysis of dynamically changing emissions and deposition, their link to tropospheric chemical reactions and interactions with climate, and emerging feedbacks between chemistry-climate and surface processes. We will target both local and regional scales, taking into account chemistry and climate feedbacks on the global scale.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A broad research consortium has improved our understanding of how aerosols and other airborne particles influence global climate change.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The atmosphere itself, how chemicals interact with it and how it interacts with the biosphere form an incredibly complex system. Altering a single component can result in disproportionate effects elsewhere, which can have a huge influence on the behaviour of the entire system. For example, by scattering and absorbing rays from the Sun, trace gases in the atmosphere play vital roles in determining weather patterns.

To limit climate change and reduce air pollution, which claims two million lives each year, a better understanding of these interactions is needed. The project 'Pan-European gas-aerosol-climate interaction study' (http://pegasos.iceht.forth.gr/ (PEGASOS)) was funded by the EU to further our understanding of these crucial issues.

PEGASOS worked to quantify the extent of both regional and global feedbacks between atmospheric chemistry and a shifting climate. Further, the project identified mitigation strategies and policies that will both improve air quality and limit effects of aerosols on the climate.

Researchers conducted a number of laboratory studies to improve the parameters used in atmospheric pollution models. Most of these focused on the interactions of aerosols with other components of the atmosphere, and the formation of secondary aerosols.

One of the project's major achievements was the collection of the most comprehensive aerosol data set to date. The data was also used to improve atmospheric models.

Researchers created or improved upon several models of atmospheric processes on both a regional and global scale. These were validated through hindcasting (predicting past conditions to judge how accurate a model is) before being used for short-term future forecasts.

The work of PEGASOS will contribute to climate change mitigation policies and strategies by providing reliable forecasts and predictions. Ultimately, this will benefit the environment and enhance quality of life.
