About iCACGP

What is iCACGP?

The international Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution (iCACGP also abbreviated CACGP) is one of the Commissions in IAMAS (International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences), which in turn is one of the associations within IUGG (International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics) under the non-governmental ICSU (International Council for Science) family.

What does iCACGP do?

iCACGP supports atmospheric chemistry research that contributes to solving the basic societal issues of water supply, food production and human/ecosystem health. This is done through an enhanced understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that control atmospheric composition and development of improved predictive capabilities.


The Commission was founded in 1957 as the Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Radioactivity. In 1971 the name was changed to the Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution. iCACGP co-sponsors the international research project IGAC (International Global Atmospheric Chemistry) together with the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), and the international SOLAS (Surface Ocean Lower Atmosphere Study) together with IGBP, the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
