PEACETIME - From Saharan dust to satellite remote sensing

The PEACETIME project studied the fundamental processes and their interactions at the ocean-atmosphere interface that occurred after atmospheric deposition in the Mediterranean Sea and how these processes affected the functioning of the pelagic ecosystem.

During the cruise in the Mediterranean from May 10 to June 11, 2017, we studied the effects of atmospheric deposition on chemical-element cycles, marine biogeochemical processes and flows, marine aerosol emissions and the effects of ongoing changes on the future functioning of riverine communities.

PEACETIME, which was designed in a multidisciplinary framework, combined dust-transport prediction and near-real-time satellite remote-sensing tools to maximize the probability of capturing a Saharan dust deposit in a stratified water column to monitor associated in-situ processes.
