SOLAS has recently published a new science plan with five science themes.

This workshop will address some of the issues associated with Theme 2: Air sea interface and fluxes of mass and energy.

The uncertainty in the air-sea exchanges of these constituents constrains our ability to understand and model our changing climate. Accurate quantification of air-sea fluxes is required for forcing ocean models, understanding ocean dynamics, investigating the forcing of variability by the atmosphere and ocean, understanding the ocean’s role in climate variability and change, and assessing the realism of models used for predictions from weather to climate time scales.

SOLAS would like to encourage participation in this workshop by submitting an abstract at https://airsea.nuigalway.ie/cargese/registration.

The registration deadline has been extended to the 31st of March.

This workshop is co-sponsored by SOLAS, WCRP, ESA.
