AC4 is a competitive research program that combines the previously existing Atmospheric Composition and Climate (ACC) and Global Carbon Cycle (GCC) programs within the Climate Program Office. Recognizing the many connections linking research into greenhouse gases, aerosols, and climate, the ESS Division integrated its previous efforts in these areas to stimulate a more holistic approach to studies of atmospheric chemistry and carbon cycle as they relate to climate.  Learn more...
