Abstract

This document contains an overview of the current stratospheric ozone research supported by DG XII of the European Commission (EC) within the first phase of the Environment and Climate Programme under the Framework IV Programme 1994-1998. Specifically, it describes 34 research projects which are being supported during 1996-97 in the area of stratospheric chemistry and depletion of the ozone layer. These projects address particular aspects of the stratospheric ozone issue, as the scientific processes responsible for ozone depletion in the polar and mid-latitude regions, the quantification of the natural variability of the stratosphere, the impact of aircrafts emissions, the evaluation of potential effects of ozone depletion (ultraviolet (UV) radiation fluxes), the development of instrumentation for both stratospheric ozone and UV radiation measurements, etc. In addition, three more projects supported by the Environment and Climate Programme (ELDONET in the UV effects area and SODA in space techniques area) or the Brite-Euram Programme (AEROJET in the aeronautics area), strongly linked with the stratospheric ozone research, are also included.
