Ocean sources of atmospheric primary and secondary aerosol and subsequent atmospheric processing. Also shown are aerosols direct and indirect radiative impacts.
Current national and international programs investigating marine ecosystems, aerosols, and clouds include the “Atmospheric Composition and Radiative forcing changes due to UN International Ship Emissions regulations” (ACRUISE), the program on “The Great Barrier Reef as a significant source of climatically relevant aerosol particles”, “Sea2Cloud: Are marine microorganisms influencing clouds?”, “Shipping Emissions in the Arctic and North Atlantic Atmosphere” (SEANA), and the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES). Information on planned observational programs and workshops can be found via the respective program websites:

A workshop on Interconnections between aerosols, clouds, and marine ecosystems in contrasting environments, held in Rome, November 2018 brought together representatives of 10+ large European and International projects aiming to improving our understanding of the connection between ocean and aerosols and ultimately clouds. To maintain the momentum from that workshop, share their findings and improve communications as the different programs evolve, we will explore different options to strengthen the links between these programs (online exchanges, special session during conferences (AGU, EGU), workshops, etc.).
Interact with IGAC representatives at the 16th IGAC Science Conference, Manchester, UK, September 12-16, 2021, to investigate the opportunities in developing more collabo-rations between SOLAS and IGAC.
Engage with the aerosol community during the 21st ICNAA Conference, Brisbane, Australia, 2021.
Planning to submit a working group proposal on clouds to IUGG Grants Program 2020-2023 as joint IGAC-SOLAS initiative.
