The Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces (GTWS) meeting occurs every 5 years and brings together approximately 150 scientists from countries all over the world. This topic is globally-important – the most widely-known example of air-water gas transfer is the ocean’s uptake of ~30% of the atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from fossil fuel burning. The ocean’s absorption of carbon dioxide has slowed the impact of anthropogenic climate change, but is also causing ocean acidification and negatively impacting the marine ecosystem.
The next meeting will be held in Plymouth (UK) in May 2020. To find out more information and to register please click here.
