2017 Joint IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA Assembly
The 2017 Joint IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA Assembly will take place in Cape Town, South Africa from 27 August to 1 September 2017.
There are two sessions of particular interest for the SOLAS community, submit an abstract by 12 March 2017:
M01: Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics for the 21st Century
Convenors: James Drummond, Melita Keywood , John P. Burrows
With subsessions on Multi-scale transport processes or Tracer transport processes over complex terrain; Advances of science in delivering atmospheric services for science and society; Air quality, health and ecosystem impacts; Air-snow-ice interactions; Atmosphere ocean interactions and exchane of trace gases; Biomass burning; Global stratospheric ozone; Polar ozone; Climate chemistry interactions and feedback; and Laboratory studies
M06: Oceans as a source and sink for aerosols and related feedbacks
Convenor: Zev Levin
Co-convenors: Ilan Koren, Paul DeMott
Production of CCN and IN from the ocean and the role of aerosols like dust and pollution in affecting the ocean acidity.
This session is perfect opportunity to collaborate with the SOLAS community. It can link research related to marine ecosystems and aerosols in both ways (i.e. how ecosystems affect aerosol fluxes and properties and how aerosols affect the ecosystem) and on the complex interactions with clouds (i.e marine aerosols affect clouds and clouds affect the ecosystem).
