This workshop will bring together French, South American and international scientists working on observations (modern and past) and the modeling of atmospheric dust and climate.
These two days of seminars, courses and round table will provide an opportunity to discuss recent work on these critical uncertainties and on progress made in determining emissions,
transport and deposition of dust, as well as the sensitivity of oceans, continents and climate with physico-chemical variations of atmospheric dust.
Participants will aim at identifying key questions to better understand how to limit the impact of atmospheric dust on the cycles of continental and oceanic biogeochemical elements, as well as on climate change. The main participants from the dust modeling, dust reconstruction and biogeochemistry circles will discuss the latest advances in their work and share their major scientific questions not only with each other, but also with the young generation of students in the field of earth and climate science.
The workshop is free but limited to 20 people.
Registration can be made to François De Vleeschouwer: email@example.com by providing an abstract of the work to be presented.
Registration deadline is January 15th.
