Announcing the SOLAS Latin American Workshop

SOLAS will hold an online Spanish workshop on Marine Biogeochemistry Research on Latin American Coastal Zones on 26 May 2023 at 14:00-17:50 UTC-4.

The workshop aims to learn about current research on coastal marine biogeochemistry in Latin America, focusing on, but not restricted to, the key biogeochemical interactions and feedback between the ocean and the atmosphere of upwelling zones.

In addition, the workshop seeks to create a Latin American community network to start collaborations under SOLAS common scientific interests that contribute to reducing spatial and temporal knowledge gaps, achieving a better understanding of biogeochemical variability, the processes that control the greenhouse gases cycling, and the system’s response to environmental stressors on a regional scale.

Likewise, with the creation of this network, it is intended to understand how this coupled ocean-atmosphere system affects and is affected by climate and environmental change to find new ways to further contribute toward constructive solutions to the concerns of society.
