LOTUS is an international research initiative endorsed by SPARC, IO3C and WMO (GAW) that kicked off at the Quadrennial Ozone Symposium in 2016. LOTUS focuses on revisiting the estimates and understanding of Long-term Ozone Trends and Uncertainties in the Stratosphere, in preparation for the WMO/UNEP 2018 Ozone Assessment. More detailed information on LOTUS can be found at our main website.
