Joint workshop IGAC- SOLAS on Influence of Coastal Pollution on Marine Chemistry

Held at CNR headquarters in Rome the workshop comes before a second SOLAS workshop on Interactions Between Aerosols, Clouds, and Marine Ecosystems in Constraining Environments. 27-29 November

Friday 19 October 2018

Joint workshop IGAC- SOLAS on Influence of Coastal Pollution on Marine Chemistry

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.

Scientific Organizing Committee:

  • Maurice Levasseur (Canada)
  • Emmanuel Boss (USA)
  • Ilan Koren (Israel)
