The High Altitude Research Station at Jungfraujoch is widely recognised as an important research site. This is documented by the fact that Jungfraujoch was recently selected as one of the 24 Global Atmosphere Watch stations (GAW) within the framework of WMO activities. The GAW activities are in line with the International Global Observing Strategy (IGOS) on Integrated Global Atmospheric Chemistry Observation (IGACO). In addition, Jungfraujoch is an alpine site within the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC). Jungfraujoch is also a station within national networks such as the Swiss national network of air pollution observation (NABEL), which is part of the European Monitoring and Evaluation Program (EMEP), investigating particularly the large-scale dissemination of air pollutants within Europe. The station was opened in 1931. Therefore, an international conference to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the High Altitude Research Station Jungfraujoch was held at Interlaken, Switzerland (11–13 September, 2006). Studies across different research fields were presented, stimulating discussions among representatives of many disciplines from chemists, physicists, astronomers, and biologists to physicians.
