Vinnustofa CAMS á Íslandi

Dagana 13. -  14. febrúar 2024 verður haldin vinnustofa á vegum Copernicus Athmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) þar sem megináherslan verður á  vettvangsmælingar,
vöktun á ryki, hlutverk sífrera, langdrægum flutningum á ryki sem og ryki á lægri breiddargráðum til norðurslóða og hvaða loftslagsáhrif það hefur. 

Vinnustofan er öllum opin á fjarfundi:
