The 8th International Symposium on Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces

Tuesday 19 May 2020 - Friday 22 May 2020

Plymouth Marine Laboratory

Three images showing photos of the sea with the centre image showing a man and a drone flying Bringing together the scientific community investigating theory and applications of Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces.

The focus is on the physicochemical and biogeochemical processes that govern atmosphere-water gas exchange and fluxes, which include turbulence, shear,  breaking waves, bubbles andnatural and anthropogenic surfactants.  Biological and chemical processes within the microlayer can also impact on gas fluxes.  Many of these mechanisms also govern the exchange of heat and momentum and thus the conference is attended by many in the community studying a wide range of  processes that occur across gas-water boundaries or within the near-surface layers close to those boundaries. The scope of the conference covers all domains where atmosphere and water meet, which include but are not limited to, fresh water, estuarine, mountain, glacial, marine (coastal and open ocean) and polar regions.

Topics include: field observations, laboratory and numerical studies, near-surface processes, biological effects including surfactants, the micro-layer, remote sensing, global scale processes and many more.
