Halocarbons in the Ocean and Atmosphere
(HalOcAt) database project
HalOcAt brings together global oceanic and atmospheric data of mainly short-lived brominated and iodinated trace gases
HalOcAt will publish global surface concentration fields and air-sea fluxes, with all data providers as coauthors
HalOcAt will start to produce estimates of global air-sea flux in January 2010 using all data that has been assembled by that time.
HalOcAt will make database available to the community by the end of 2010
HalOcAt will serve as source of comparison for individual data sets
HalOcAt-database will eventually be published in a global data centre (no obligation for contributors)
