SOLAS Indian Ocean Meeting

30 September 2020

The Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) project is an international research initiative aiming to understand the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere. With members and projects across the world's oceans, the SOLAS scientific community is composed of scientists from many disciplines, such as oceanography, ecology, biogeochemistry, physics, chemistry, and atmospheric sciences. Further details about SOLAS can be found in the website link below:
