Project: Organics over the Ocean Modifying Particles in both Hemispheres (OOMPH)

01-SEP-05 – 31-AUG-08

By laboratory experiments on seawater samples, the nature and rate of emissions of organic trace species from marine biology will be characterised. Marine aerosols, with emphasis on the organic fraction, will also be investigated in terms of physical, chemical, hygroscopic, and optical properties. Two research cruises will be performed to assess both emission and uptake in the open ocean.
