Constrained aerosol forcing for improved climate projections

Understanding and reducing the long-standing uncertainty in anthropogenic aerosol radiative forcing.

The FORCeS Project

Read more about the goals and project objectives of the FORCeS project.

The ultimate aim of the FORCeS project is to understand and reduce the long-standing uncertainty in anthropogenic aerosol radiative forcing. This is crucial if we are to increase confidence in climate projections.

FORCeS will identify key processes governing aerosol radiative forcing, as well as climate feedbacks related to aerosols and clouds, and improve the knowledge about these processes by bringing together leading European scientists

FORCeS reaches out to decision-makers and stakeholders and provides added-value information through workshops where climate science and climate policy experts meet to achieve maximum impact.

September 2019 marked the beginning of the FORCeS NASCENT measurement campaign at Ny-Ålesund. The aim of the campaign, which is taking place from Autumn 2019 to Autumn 2020, is to study the microphysical and chemical properties of aerosols and clouds using a suite of instrumentation.
