Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS)

SCOR Working Group #162 - Developing an Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS)

Arctic Ocean, Create a digital representation of the Ocean, Expand the Global Ocean Observing System, Indian Ocean, North Atlantic Ocean, North Pacific Ocean, Programme, Skills, knowledge and technology for all, South Atlantic Ocean, South Pacific Ocean, Southern Ocean

Air-sea exchanges of energy, moisture, and gases drive and modulate the Earth's weather and climate, influencing life, including our own.

These air-sea interactions fuel the hydrological cycle and affect precipitation across the globe. Air-sea interactions affect the distribution of carbon dioxide between the atmosphere and ocean, how seawater flows and winds blow, and how pollutants floating on the ocean surface move – information critical to policymakers, industry, and civil society. The Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) PROGRAMME will provide observational-based knowledge to fundamentally improve weather, climate and ocean prediction, promote healthy oceans, the blue economy, and sustainable food and energy.

This Programme hosts the following endorsed  Ocean Decade Projects:

Impact of Black Carbon in South East Asia

Southern Ocean Flux Capability Working Group
