ESSIC Scientist Santiago Gassó participated as speaker in and chaired several sessions during the Surface-Ocean Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) Summer virtual school, which was held June 13-17,2022. He taught a remote sensing module on June 13, chaired the Atmospheric deposition and ocean biogeochemistry session, and co hosted the Science Writing and Social media Workshop on June 14. He was also a judge for all poster sessions and a photography competition held throughout the week.
Santiago Gassó is one of the co-authors in the recently released science plan by the US Surface Ocean – Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS), a global and multidisciplinary research project established to provide international science coordination and capacity building. SOLAS is focused on understanding the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere that are critical elements of climate and global biogeochemical cycles.
On December 1 -3, two members of code 613 participated in an international workshop hosted by the European agency Eumesat and the SOLAS project: “Remote Sensing for Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions Studies and Applications Workshop”. The meeting had an assortment of presentations and discussion panels as well as demonstration of the web and cloud interfaces available for data discovery. Santiago Gassó (ESSIC) participated as one the science organizing committee members, as a panelist and convener.
