SSiRC as part of the Stratosphere-Troposphere Process and their Role in Climate Project (SPARC) coordinates the international research activities on (a) observing, understanding and modeling the processes that control the stratospheric sulfur and aerosol budget, (b) observing stratospheric sulfur and aerosol and reconciling the data sets from different instruments, (c) including an interactive aerosol layer in global chemistry climate modeling, and (d) modeling the climate feedback from the stratospheric aerosol layer. SPARC is a core project of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP).
