Welcome to the ESPERE Association

The ESPERE Association has been founded in order to maintain websites developed in the European Union funded project ESPERE-ENC and related projects.

The purpose was to develop an online encyclopaedia on the climate system for the public based on scientific knowledge.

The ESPERE Encyclopaedia is currently hosted at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Major parts have not been updated since 2004. Basics on the atmosphere and the climate system are still valid. But climate change and atmospheric composition change have been advancing in the recent 20 years.
