About us

The Gothenburg Air and Climate Network, GAC (former Gothenburg Atmospheric Science Centre) is a network for activities in atmospheric and climate science in the Gothenburg region. The main objectives of GAC are to promote, coordinate and strengthen the existing atmospheric and climate research in western Sweden and to contribute to solving problems related to air quality, climate change and other environmental issues.


• To serve as a platform for scientists, PhD students and stakeholders interested in air and climate issues.
• To organize seminars, workshops and conferences
• Provide funding for members who want to conduct seminars/workshops and for visiting scientists.
• To encourage collaborations between the GAC members and initiate new projects.
• To collaborate with other sustainability-oriented networks.
• To promote and support PhD students and early career scientists in atmospheric and climate science.


The GAC network consist mainly of researchers from Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg interested in a wide range of topics such as atmospheric radiation, gases and aerosols, natural and man made emissions and its uptake, air quality and health, climate change and human behaviour. Thus, our researchers come from a wide range of departments such as Biolocial and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Technology Managment and Economics, Earth Sciences, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Occupational and environmental medicine and Public Health and Community Medicine.

Most members can be found in this open database.

Furthermore the GAC network engages several researchers from the Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL. In the board we also have officials from the County Administrative Board Västra Götaland and the Environmental Administration at the City of Gothenburg.

GAC infrastructure

An GAC infrastructure are an analysis instrument, a larger laboratory set up, a model or a field site that is used or hosted by GAC member.

The specific condition for using an specific GAC infrastructure are dictated by the individual owner/organization. As a member of GAC you can download our infrastructure list below, using a password. Contact a a GAC boardmember if you have lost or have not received a password.

Seen from a broad environmental perspective, Gothenburg with its many strong research groups and individuals as well as research institutes and other partners is a unique and internationally strong research hub. The Gothenburg Air and Climate network began in 2004 as the Gothenburg Atmospheric Science Centre to coordinate and strengthen resources and activities in the region.

Atmospheric and climate science are trans-disciplinary in character and cover a broad range of environmental, health, social, economic and cultural aspects. Examples of areas of interest are climate change, depletion of the ozone layer, air quality and health and environmental effects caused by air pollutions. To reach a sustainable development the need to continue both basic and applied research is very large.
