Workshop Announcement

Tropospheric OXidation CApacity (TOXCA)
workshop 2013 in Bremen

The Tropospheric OXidation CApacity (TOXCA) thematic workshop takes place within the 2nd phase of the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) SPP-HALO program and is coordinated by the Institute of Environmental Physics of the University of Bremen and supported by the SPP coordination project. TOXCA will be held in Bremen from the 16th to the 18th January 2013

TOXCA promises to become an interesting forum to put together and to discuss new lines of research within the HALO-SPP. Reporting gradually from ground based to airborne experiments will be used to revise the state of art in the study of the oxidation capacity of the troposphere and to identify key scientific issues which can benefit from further measurements on the HALO platform.


!!! Last-minute announcement!!!

You do not have to print out both agenda and abstracts as we'll have
paper copies available at the registration desk on Wednesday.
