Advanced Greenhouse Gas and Aerosol Research Laboratory (AGAR)

The main focus of the Aerosols and Greenhouse gases (GHGs) Projection and Mitigation Laboratory is to conduct and implement research and decision support tools (1) in emission inventory; (2) in monitoring the atmospheric concentration over Thailand of trace atmospheric compounds, e.g. methane, nitrous oxides, carbon dioxide and carbonaceous aerosols including black carbon and organic carbon, which are recognized to be short live climate forcing agents; (3) in projection of the emissions of these compounds for medium and long term; and (4) defining appropriate mitigation options both for energy and non-energy related sectors.
