IUPAC Workshop on Atmospheric Deposition and Impacts on Ecosystems with Particular Reference to the Mideast

5-6 June 2000
Tel Aviv, Israel

> Second Circular and Draft Program
- pdf file posted 16 March 2000

Atmospheric deposition of pollutants on fresh water ecosystems is particularly relevant for regions and countries in the arid zones, such as the Middle East including Israel. This short symposium, sponsored by IUPAC, the Israel Ministry of Science, and the Israel Chemical Society, is intended to bring together internationally recognized experts in the field of atmospheric deposition with other scientists who are working on this topic in Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere, and with members of the IUPAC Division of Environmental Chemistry (VI); Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry (VI.2); and Commission on Soil and Water Chemistry (VI.3). Points of discussion will include the following:

  • cause-effect relationships between deposition and factors affecting the conditions and the health of ecosystems
  • monitoring and estimation tools to overcome interdisciplinary and international transboundary problems
  • interactions and synergisms between pollutants and predictive understanding of integrated land/water systems

This one-day symposium will include three sessions of 2.5 hours each, all starting with two tutorial overviews on wet and dry deposition, followed by contributed presentations. Topics to be covered include the following:

  • fundamentals of dry deposition
  • fundamentals of wet deposition
  • atmospheric deposition over Europe
  • atmospheric deposition over Israel
  • Great Lakes atmospheric deposition studies
  • Kineret Lake atmospheric deposition studies
  • atmospheric deposition on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea
  • atmospheric dust and cloud physics and chemistry

There will also be a panel discussion featuring representatives of the Israeli Ministry of the Environment, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, IMAP or IGBP, and EUROTRAC.
