Short summary
The long-term evolution of HCHO in the remote troposphere is characterized using a 27-year time series of total columns from high-resolution FTIR solar spectra recorded at Jungfraujoch. A parametric model is used to remove the effect of the HCHO diurnal variations for improving the trend determination and the comparison with columns simulated by GEOS-Chem. Sensitivity tests are performed to identify the main drivers of the HCHO seasonal and inter-annual variations, as well as their contribution.
