SCOR WG 167 Copernicus Special Issue Launched

The SCOR Working Group 167, RUSTED, aims at assuring the quality of aerosol trace element solubility data produced by the international research community and its use in Earth System models.

RUSTED is now calling for manuscripts to contribute to its special issue on “Reducing the Uncertainty in aerosol Soluble Trace Element Deposition.” This is a Copernicus inter-journal special issue lead by the journal  “Atmospheric Measurement and Techniques”, but submissions are also welcome in “Atmospheric  Chemistry and Physics,” “Aerosol Research,” and “Biogeosciences.”

The RUSTED special issue welcomes cutting-edge studies which advance our knowledge of the deposition of soluble aerosol trace elements and their impacts on marine ecosystems as well as manuscripts addressing challenges and/or recent advances in the field of aerosol trace element deposition. This call is open to the wider international researchers community working on trace element biogeochemistry at the air-sea interface. Please request for your inclusion to the RUSTED SI when submitting your manuscript to one of the above mentioned contributing journal.
