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 8th seminar of the series is hosted by the Cryosphere and Atmospheric Chemistry (CATCH) & SOLAS Early Career Scientist Committee (ECSC) and will be held online from 08:00-10:00 UTC on 22 April 2024.

This seminar will focus on “Iodine cycle in polar regions and its impact on aerosols and clouds“. Atmospheric iodine, dominated by ocean emissions, is important in atmospheric chemistry as iodine is a very efficient ozone depleting substance in the atmosphere, and can form new particles that can grow to cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) sizes, thereby establishing a direct link between iodine emissions and impacts on climate. This CATCH & SOLAS seminar will highlight the recent understanding and future challenges of iodine cycling in various environments, such as the polar regions and remote marine boundary layer, and the roles of iodine in driving marine secondary aerosol formation.

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