 The current status of Arctic sea ice

UPMC- Laboratoire Atmospheres, Milieux, Observations Spatiales (LATMOS)

The LATMOS (Laboratoire Atmospheres, Milieux, Observations Spatiales) has a long experience in the study of dynamical, radiative and chemical processes in the Earth and planetary atmospheres using combined experimental and theoretical approaches, including various observation systems. The laboratory is also part of the Institute Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL) which plays a leading role in chemistry-climate research at national and international level. The LATMOS has considerable expertise in the field of atmospheric chemistry and aerosol research, ranging from development and application of trajectory, regional and global chemistry models, assimilation, analysis of airborne and satellite data, and study of chemistry-climate interactions. It is supported by the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES) as one of the leading laboratory for the development and exploitation of satellite-borne atmospheric remote sensors.


Tasks attributed: WP1: Key factors affecting climate and transport of pollutants in the Arctic; WP2: Air pollution and surface deposition related to arctic shipping; WP3: Air pollution and climate impact related to Arctic gas/oil extraction; WP5: Local and remote pollution impacts on Arctic air quality and climate


Principal Investigator:

Dr. Kathy Law is a CNRS Directeur of Research at the LATMOS/IPSL since 2003. She has 20 years experience in atmospheric science working on numerical modelling, data analysis, campaigns related to atmospheric trace gases, long-range transport etc. and is author of more than 55 peer-reviewed scientific papers. She is co-chair of International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC), member of IGAC and IGBP SCs and has previously been the IGAC representative on SPARC SSG and member of Commission for Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution (CACGP) (1998-2006). She is a coordinator of International Polar Year (IPY) project POLARCAT on the study of long-range transport of pollutants to the Arctic. She is a PI on EU FP6 funded projects SCOUT-O3, AMMA, GEMS and FP7 CITYZEN. She was PI on many past EU/nationally funded projects (e.g. MOZAIC, TACIA, MAXOX, POET, EXPORT) including coordinator of French ITOP (Intercontinental Transport of Ozone and its Precursors) project contribution to IGAC-ITCT and ICARTT. She has been co-author, contributor and reviewer of numerous international assessments organised by WMO/UNEP, IPCC, IGAC.
