Responsible : Xavier Mari - M.I.O
Participant : BUI Van Vuong (PhD ARTS-IRD). Historical deposition flux of Black Carbon and co-pollutants in Halong Bay, Vietnam
to determine the impact of Black Carbon on the biological carbon pump and its feedback on atmospheric CO2 concentration,
to determine the impact of Black Carbon on the transfer of contaminants to the marine food web,
to improve Black Carbon emissions inventories in South East Asia and determine ocean input, by establishing a regional monitoring network for measuring concentrations and characteristics of Black Carbon in the atmospheric, riverine and marine compartments,
to develop an atmosphere / ocean modeling framework describing the climate, biogeochemical and health impacts of Black carbon.
