A New Perspective at the Ship-Air-Sea-Interface: The Environmental Impacts of Exhaust Gas Scrubber Discharge
In October 2016, 10 researchers from the fields of natural and social science met for a SOLAS-initiated workshop to discuss the impacts of ship emissions on biogeochemical processes at the air-sea interface and their socio-economic relevance. Read SOLAS Event Report Issue 6 about it.
One aim of the workshop was to identify future research priorities at the ship-air-sea interface using emissions from scrubber systems as an example. The results of the workshop resulted in the publication of a joint review in Frontiers in Marine Science.
