Lead institution:

SCOR Working Group #162 – Developing an Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) – United States of America (USA)

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.

Start Date: 01/11/2021
End Date: 31/12/2030
