Work due 01 Jan 2099
- Short term work: New data become available annually. Figures, tables and assessment could be updated.
- Long term work: New compounds might become relevant in the future for the total GHG concentration. The concentration of, for example, SF5CF3 – a so-called super green-house gas (=characterized by large radiative forcing)- is currently very limited (only 3% of the SF6 concentration), but its current growth rate is estimated to ca 6% per year (Sturges et al, 2000; Rosiek et al, 2007). This fast growth rate and long lifetime of SF5CF3 in the atmosphere makes SF5CF3 a potentially important contributor to the global warming in the future
