[U07-04] SOLAS JAPAN activity
Keywords:Atmosphere , Ocean, the Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS)
Core Theme 1: Greenhouse gases and the oceans
Core Theme 2: Air-sea interface and fluxes of mass and energy
Core Theme 3: Atmospheric deposition and ocean biogeochemistry
Core Theme 4: Interconnections between aerosols, clouds, and marine ecosystems
Core Theme 5: Ocean biogeochemical control on atmospheric chemistry
In addition, the study of these themes will be integrated to understand key environments, such as upwelling systems, the polar oceans, and coastal waters, as well as to evaluate the environmental efficacy and impacts of geoengineering proposals, policy decisions, and societal developments.
In order to respond to these SOLAS activity in Japan, the committee of SOLAS-JAPAN is renewing in 2018 and planning to coordinate national projects and opportunity for exchanging information within national and inter-national community. SOLAS-JAPAN committee is planning to hold SOLAS-Open Science Conference in Sapporo Japan in April 2019.
