SOLAP textbook

Lectures from the 2007 Summer School have been developed into a textbook ‘Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Processes’ (SOLAP). The textbook is designed to provide graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers from a wide range of academic backgrounds with a basis for understanding the nature of ocean-atmosphere interactions and the current research issues in this area. The book is published by AGU and edited by Corinne Le Quéré and Eric Saltzman.

The volume highlights include the following
• Background material on ocean and atmosphere structure, circulation, and chemistry and on marine ecosystems
• Integrative chapters on the global carbon cycle and ocean biogeochemistry
• Issue-oriented chapters on the iron cycle and dimethylsulfide
• Tool-oriented chapters on the biogeochemical modelling and remote sensing
• A framework of underlying physical/chemical/biological principals, as well as perspectives on current research issues in the field.
