Linking Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions with Climate and People

The global and multidisciplinary research project Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) was established to provide international science coordination and capacity building.

Initiated with a first Open Science Conference in 2000 and formally launched in 2004, SOLAS research aims to understand the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere. Achievement of this goal is important to understand and quantify the role that ocean-atmosphere interactions play in the regulation of climate and global change.


SOLAS Endorsed Time Series Station: THMAO

The Tudor Hill Marine-Atmospheric Observatory (THMAO) is one of only a few marine atmospheric observatories that exist worldwide and provides the ability to make year-round, complex measurements of the atmosphere over the ocean without the use of a research ship or buoy mooring.
