Progress in fundamental understanding of atmospheric chemistry in the past decades has enabled the development of advanced environmental predictive capability. Accurate chemical weather forecasts and source attribution information can play a decisive role in mitigating the exposure of the public to acute air pollution episodes in the short-term. Chemical climate projections will allow investigation of the long-term consequences of human choices and their impact on the future evolution of the Earth system. This commentary stresses the importance of integrating atmospheric chemistry in operational environmental prediction and projection systems.
