Members of PALADYN-ERC project (N. Davtian, O. Teruel and A. Rosell) participate in the SAGA10W campaign in the South Atlantic, to sail on board the B/O Sarmiento de Gamboa from Punta Arenas (Chile) to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Our goal is to measure the distribution of pyrogenic carbon in the deep ocean to understand the fate in the ocean of atmospheric emissions of biomass burning aerosols. The SAGA project (The South Atlantic Gateway in the Global Conveyor Belt) is led by Prof. Alonso Hernández-Guerra (Instituto de Oceanografía y Cambio Global - ULPGC) and Prof. Josep Lluís Pelegrí (ICM-CSIC).
Núria Penalva and Antoni Rosell, as a contribution to the PALADYN-ERC project, participated in the EN651 scientific expedition in the tropical Atlantic Ocean to collect samples from fires in tropical Africa. The work is a contribution towards understanding the variations in the atmospheric circulation in the past and to predict rain pattern changes in the future.
