The workshop has taken place!
From the 15th until the 18th of May 2017 the SOLAS science workshop "Frontiers of ocean-atmosphere interaction: Air-sea interface and fluxes of mass and energy" took place at IESC in Cargèse, Corsica. The facilities bordering the Mediterranean Sea provided a perfect setting. IESC is a well known venue for the SOLAS community, as it hosted the 2011 Summer School (and will again in 2018).
It was a busy and fruitful week. A colourfull group of senior and early-career scientists as well as PhD students took part in the programme of morning plenary sessions, afternoon breakout sessions and the daily 'open-air' poster exhibition.
Research to the ocean surface microlayer from a large diversity of approaches and backgrounds was presented in this workshop. Topics ranged from advances in biochemical research to wave modelling, and from the interaction between the microlayer and clouds to rain-induced sea surface anomalies.
The ocean surface micro layer (OSML) provides significant challenges for both observationalists and modellers. To improve our understanding of the OSML and how it affects air-sea exchange processes, interaction and collaboration between different research communities is essential and still needs to be further advanced.
