GMD Mission To acquire, evaluate, and make available accurate, long-term records of atmospheric gases, aerosol particles, and solar radiation in a manner that allows the causes of change to be understood. Global Monitoring Division (GMD) 5 GMD 2013-2017 Research Plan Message from the Director I was recently asked in an interview what I thought GMD’s greatest accomplishment to date was. I thought of the myriad significant publications, contributions to assessments, calibration and quality assurance activities, leadership roles, partnerships, and baseline observatories. But I ultimately had to say that the greatest success for GMD was having produced and maintained high-quality, long-term data records of atmospheric composition at over 100 sites around the world for up to five decades. That is not trivial and requires skilled scientists, technicians, and communicators to sustain it year in and year out. Collectively, GMD’s is a unique contribution to understanding the changing composition of Earth’s atmosphere and its influence on the Earth system as a
