Current Projects contributing to Climate Change

SUPARCO’s Climate Change Study Program primarily addresses the issues concerned with parameters and processes responsible for climate change with a view to provide a better understanding of the effects and behavior of key trace gases in the atmosphere. The analysis includes both experimental and computational studies in order to assess the impact of climate change on national, regional and global scale, so that vulnerable areas and adaptation options can be identified

Under this program, SUPARCO is engaged in the following studies:

(1) Aerosol Optical Thickness (Seasonal Study of Aerosols Optical Thickness and Cloud Cover over Pakistan using Satellite Data)

(2) Ozone Depletion
