Call for participation in the
3rd CATCH Open Science Workshop 9-13 May 2022
CATCH proudly announces the next science workshop to discuss atmospheric chemistry research, with a focus on natural processes specific to cold regions of the Earth. Please find details regarding schedule and online registration at https://indico.psi.ch/e/CATCH
The workshop will host invited talks, social interactions, and contributed posters on CATCH related topics with the aim of fostering scientific interactive discussions between researchers on outstanding questions. This workshop addresses researchers at all stages of their careers and will provide ample opportunity for early career scientists to present and discuss their work.
For the detailed daily programme of each session follow the links below:
Day 1 - 9 May: Linking biogeochemistry to aerosol-cloud interactions in the Southern Ocean and Antarctic (Marc Mallet Sonya Fiddes & Ruhi Humphries):
PICCAASO (Partnerships for Investigations of Clouds and the biogeoChemistry of the Atmosphere in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean) aims to take a community approach to understanding links between ocean and ice biology up to clouds around Antarctica. This session will have presenters with recent key findings as well as discussions about upcoming observational and modelling work.
Day 2 - 10 May: Ocean-ice-snow-atmosphere fluxes (Markus Frey & Jen Murphy): Presentation of the current approaches to quantify trace gas and aerosol fluxes above ocean, ice and snow surfaces. Discussion of the strategies to overcome limitations/uncertainties in measurement strategies and how to use this flux information within models.
Day 3 - 11 May: Polar halogen chemistry and interlinked processes (Jennie Thomas & Thorsten Bartels-Rauch): What is the role of snow, including snow on sea ice, compared to sea salt aerosols in activating and sustaining halogen chemistry? What are the main outstanding questions regarding how halogens influence atmospheric aerosols and oxidation capacity?
Day 4 - 12 May: Cryospheric links to aerosol-cloud interactions (Paul Zieger & Jessie Creamean): What are the sources and abundances of cloud forming aerosols in the polar regions and how do these vary over the seasons? What processes control aerosol emission and transport? What are the current modeling deficiencies?
Day 5 - 13 May: Coupling of ocean-ice-atmosphere processes: from sea-Ice biogeochemistry to aerosols and Clouds: CIce2Clouds (Megan Willis & Nadja Steiner): Present educational sessions on cross-cutting themes that link the sea-ice/ocean/atmosphere system. Present the plans for CIce2Clouds (SCOR WG #163), and first steps from sub-working groups, to the community and engage community participation.
The meeting format will be one topic per day split into 3 oral sessions (2 hours each) covering all time zones including interactive discussions with one hour of posters and/or social time prior to each oral session. We look forward to your participation.
