SOLAS in Asia: A Future SOLAS Symposium

Geolocation
Oct2016
26
until 28 Oct 2016
Qingdao, China

The research project will hold a symposium to strengthen regional collaborations and to promote communication with the international community.

The Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) is a global research project of Future Earth. Its primary objective is to achieve quantitative understanding of the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and the atmosphere.

The Symposium organizer writes:

Asian countries have made considerable contributions to SOLAS in the broad context of international collaborations, especially in the fields of ocean carbon cycle, air-sea exchange and atmospheric deposition to oceans. Considering Asian countries acting as the world economic engines, SOLAS studies therein should strengthen internal collaborations and pioneer some international collaboration programs to better service future social-economic activities on the earth.

This future SOLAS symposium aims to foster the exchange of ideas and knowledge between Asian scientists as well as the communication with the international community and to promote collaborations within Asian countries for SOLAS research and activities over the next decade.

The Symposium will include a presentation on Future Earth, where a representative from the Regional Centre for Future Earth in Asia will introduce the initiative and its activities.
