ScopeThe Stratosphere-troposphere Processes And their Role in Climate (SPARC) is one of the major projects of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and is characterized by its focus on chemical and dynamical coupling in the stratosphere and troposphere. In this session, we welcome presentations on various processes in the stratosphere and troposphere.
