Joint workshop IGAC- SOLAS on Influence of Coastal Pollution on Marine Chemistry (27-28 November)

Update, 15 September 2018:

  • Agenda and invited speakers of both workshops have been announced. Have a look here.
  • 2 October 2018:   Early registration closes.Register here.
  • More details and information about the workshops objectives here.

Workshop 1
Influence of Coastal Pollution on Marine Chemistry will focus on challenging topics in the field of air-sea interactions and atmospheric chemistry. It is organized jointly by SOLAS and IGAC. The workshop 1 will especially address the influence of the coastal pollution (air and water) on the chemistry of gas and particles in the marine environment will be addressed as well as the effects on climate and human health. The workshop main question is: How coastal pollution (air and water) affects gas and particles emitted over the coasts and how this feedbacks on air quality and human health?

Scientific Organizing Committee:  

  • Maria Cristina Facchini (ITA)
  • Christian George (FRA)
  • Alfonso Saiz-Lòpez (SPA)
  • Hiroshi Tanimoto (JAP)

Workshop 2
Interactions Between Aerosols, Clouds, and Marine Ecosystems in Constraining Environments is the realization from the SOLAS national annual reports of the existence of many large programs aiming at improving our understanding of the interconnections between ocean and aerosols and ultimately clouds. The timing seems just right to bring these people together and see what they have to say and try to expand from the local/temporal scale of a single project to the global scale. For this we will identify key similarities and differences in the findings of the different programs (where they overlap) as well as complementary information where they don’t. The deliverable will be a community paper.
