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.


Global Network of SOLAS mCDR Nodes

The SOLAS Climate Intervention Implementation Team is aiming to build a global network of ocean experts that work in regional nodes to develop standards for marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR) initiatives especially concerning Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV).
