SOLAS Seminar VI

Register Now! SOLAS Seminar VI on 25 July 2023, Online

The SOLAS seminar series is a quarterly event, which is structured around SOLAS relevant topics covered by the SOLAS 2015-2025 Science Plan and beyond, with the aims of fostering discussions on cutting edge scientific questions, providing researchers at all career stages with the opportunity to interact and building SOLAS community across the globe.

The 6th seminar of the series will focus on “Halogen chemistry: from ocean to stratosphere“. Ocean biogeochemistry has long been recognised to impact the composition of the atmosphere, halogens being an excellent example. Recently, atmospheric halogen chemistry has received renewed attention for its role in climate cooling and ozone destruction. This SOLAS seminar will try to dress a “vertical” picture of halogens: from their biogeochemical cycling associated with dissolved organic matter in the oceans to modelling the connection between ocean and atmospheres (for iodine in particular) and their influence up to the lower stratosphere where they act as ozone depleting catalysts.

The seminar is co-hosted by the SOLAS Early Career Scientist Committee (ECSC) and International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Early Career Scientific Steering Committee (ECSSC) and will be held online from 12:00-14:00 UTC on 25 July 2023.

Registration is open and free of charge. More information on SOLAS website here.
