ChArMEx is an international cooperative research program that aims at a better understanding and quantification of the tropospheric chemistry and its impacts in the Mediterranean with a focus on air quality, regional climate, and biogeochemistry, and of their future evolution.

It is composed of 13 main components:

  • ChArMEx France
  • ChArMEx Italy
  • ChArMEx Spain
  • ChArMEx US
  • ChArMEx Malta
  • ChArMEx Algeria
  • ChArMEx Germany
  • ChArMEx Ireland
