2 2 WMO GAW VOC Workshop 30Jan-1 Feb 2006 What is GAW? WMO/GAW was established 1989 by merging GO 3 OS and BAPMoN. GAW focuses on global networks for GHGs, ozone, UV, aerosols, selected reactive gases, and precipitation chemistry. GAW is a partnership involving contributors from 80 countries. GAW is coordinated by the Environment Division of WMO/AREP. Currently GAW coordinates activities and data from 24 Global stations, 637 Regional stations, and 19 Contributing

3 IGACO Presents the reason and need for Global Atmospheric Chemistry Observations Targets 13 variable groups including reactive gases. Assesses past, current and expected state of observing system for each target variable Reviews requirements for observations for each target variable group Makes 12 General Recommendations and 7 Specific Recommendations Provides a framework for the next generation GAW programme
