Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP)
"The Arctic Council is evaluating steps that could be taken to reduce the impact of specific Short-Lived Climate Forcers (SLCF) in the Arctic. In support of that evaluation, AMAP has commissioned two Expert Groups to evaluate the state of the science in understanding the sources and impacts of SLCF's. A technical report assessing the emissions and transport of black carbon and tropospheric ozone precursors to the Arctic as well as a parallel report assessing natural and anthropogenic sources and emissions of methane in the Arctic will be finalized at the end of 2014." /.../
