The Swiss Contribution to the WMO Global Atmosphere Watch Programme; Achievements of the first Decade and Future Prospects


The Swiss Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW-CH) Programme is ten years old. Based on the recommendations of the first national GAW Conference in 1993, the needs and priorities for the GAW related activities at the national level were defined. Subsequently, a steering committee established a comprehensive GAW Programme in Switzerland, which became operational in 2001, after a set-up phase of six years.
