Fostering multidisciplinary research on interactions between chemistry, biology, and physics within the coupled cryosphere-atmosphere system

Thomas et al. 2019


A paper entitled 'Fostering multidisciplinary research on interactions between chemistry, biology, and physics within the coupled cryosphere-atmosphere systemhe oceanic sink for anthropogenic CO2 from 1994 to 2007', resulting from the Cryosphere and Atmospheric Chemistry (CATCH) initiative, has been published. CATCH is jointly sponsored by SOLAS and the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Project.

In this paper, Thomas et al. identify four key science areas:
(1) micro-scale processes in snow and ice,
(2) the coupled cryosphere-atmosphere system,
(3) cryospheric change and feedbacks, and
(4) improved decisions and stakeholder engagement.
To pursue these goals CATCH will foster an international, multidisciplinary research community, shed light on new research needs, support the acquisition of new knowledge, train the next generation of leading scientists, and establish interactions between the science community and society.
