Community Involvement

Biospherical Instruments supports our scientific community through a variety of means including holding workshops covering areas of our scientific expertise, training our customers to use their instruments, conducting intercomparisons, and supporting various agency needs by hosting workshops. See Workshops and Training for details.

We are also active in our research communities by serving on international standards groups and United Nations-supported committees in monitoring global change, and involvement at various levels of authorship on publications arising from these activities:

  • Co-author of the Environmental Effects of Ozone Depletion: 2014 Assessment
  • NDACC Steering Committee representative for spectral UV measurements
  • Palmer Area User Committee, an advisory group for NSF's logistics contractor for Antarctic research
  • Working group on UV-instruments of the Scientific Advisory Group for UV established by the World Meteorological Organization
  • Co-author of the 2002 and 2006 WMO/UNEP Scientific Assessments of Ozone Depletion
  • Contributing author of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment

The following is a partial list of publications arising from the above. (Our Publications page has a complete listing of all BSI-authored publications.)
