Welcome to the ECLIPSE web pages!

ECLIPSE is a EU FP7 Collaborative Project, aiming to develop and assess effective emission abatement strategies for short-lived climate forcers in order to provide sound scientific advice on measures that mitigate climate change and improve air quality at the same time.

Project Funding
 


ECLIPSE is a Collaborative Project (Small or medium-scale focused research project) funded under the EU Seventh Framework Programme - (ENV.2011.1.1.2-2) Climate forcing of non UNFCCC gases, aerosols and black carbon .

Brochure for Policy makers
As a result of the ECLIPSE project the main policy relevant findings are summed up in a folder which can be downloaded here ...
Oil and Gas Production Drives Arctic Ice Melt
The flaring of natural gas is contributing more than 40 percent of the sooty black carbon in the Arctic, a level that raises new concerns about the link between energy production and ice melt, according to a new study. Read more ...
Gas flaring and household stoves speed Arctic thaw
Gas flaring by the oil industry and smoke from residential burning contributes more black carbon pollution to Arctic than previously thought—potentially speeding the melting of Arctic sea ice and contributing to the fast rate of warming in the region. Read more ...
Sulphur-dioxide emissions decreased over last six years
A study estimates that global emissions of sulphur dioxide decreased from 2005 to 2011, a situation that, although promising from a pollution point of view, could have serious implications for climate. Read more ....
Thin Ice Report
This report shows how mitigating Short-lived Climate Pollutantsspecifically black carbon and methane in the coming two decades can slow down the melting of the cryosphere while benefitting human communities.

Metrics Workshop
In Copenhagen there was a workshop on metrics, where some partners from ECLIPSE contributed. The topic was: "Integrating air quality and climate change mitigation - Is there a need for new metrics to support decision making." Read more ...
