On this day, the World Meteorological Organization accepted our request to upgrade the station status from regional to global. This is great news!
We are grateful for the help and continuous support from all the institutions that accompaign and are part of the Chacaltaya GAW station from the very beginning.
We are commited to continue providing traceable observations of greenhouse gases (2 variables), reactive gases (3 variables), and atmospheric aerosols (6 variables) following the recommendations of the GAW Programme.
Chacaltaya observatory is now an
established sentinel for monitoring changes occurring in the tropical Andes at a regional and local scale.
